Global Understanding through Anthropology
Anthropology: A Global Perspective connects readers with other cultures and helps them understand diversity in our modern, globalized world. The text explores current and classical research from all four subfields of anthropology–biological, cultural, linguistic, and archeological–to shape a comprehensive view of humanity.
The Eighth Edition uses a comparative approach in both its examination of facts and its tie to other fields of study. The text centers around three major themes to make material that spans across time and discipline accessible to audiences. Through critical thinking, competing hypotheses, and an in-depth examination of specific data, Anthropology: A Global Perspective introduces readers to the many complex facets of human nature.

Biological Anthropology, 3/e is written to appeal to a wide range of students. It continues to build upon the strength and success of its first and second editions by integrating the foundations of the field with the most current innovations happening today.
Over the past 40 years, biological anthropology has rapidly evolved from the study of physical anthropology into biological anthropology. Biological anthropology is now an integrative combination of information from the fossil record and the human skeleton, genetics of individuals and of populations, our primate relatives, human adaptation, and human behavior.
