Summary

This introductory text in general anthropology truly integrates the subfields of anthropology. Unlike other "four-field" texts, it is not divided by subfield but is organized by the topics that anthropology studies, showing how all the subfields contribute to our knowledge of the human species. It is student-friendly, concise, and, while not omitting any major topic, has a managed amount of detail. The unique holistic approach focuses on the integration of the biocultural nature, evolution, and behavior of the human species.
