This is a balanced, objective, brief, introduction to physical anthropology that does not assume students have any previous knowledge of the subject. Every concept is carefully explained and illustrated. The text is succinctly designed as an alternative to the big, expensive books. Scientific terminology and jargon has been reduced throughout the text. These award-winning teachers and authors provide a general outline and understanding of the main topics of importance to tell the story of human evolution and diversity rather than provide dry facts for students. Unnecessary detail has been cut while maintaining or expanding explanations for students.
