Now in full color, this carefully streamlined tenth edition provides students with a pedagogical program designed to facilitate comprehension. Stein and Rowe, award-winning teachers and authors, continue to share their love of discovery in this balanced, objective introduction to physical anthropology that does not assume any previous knowledge of the subject. Every concept is carefully explained and illustrated, guiding students step-by-step through difficult material. As always, Physical Anthropology uses the most current data to unravel the mystery of the evolution of humankind, and to examine the dynamic relationship between humans and their environment.
