Book Description

September 12, 2011 0078034892 978-0078034893 5
Written by one of the prominent scholars in the field, this concise, up-to-date text provides a carefully balanced introduction to core topics in the four subfields of general anthropology--physical anthropology, archeology, linguistics, and cultural anthropology--as well as contemporary changes in the field. Since no single or monolithic theoretical perspective orients this book, instructors with a wide range of views and approaches can use it effectively. The combination of brevity and readability make Window on Humanity a perfect match for general anthropology courses that use readings or ethnographies along with a main text.

This book is an excellent example of education made relative. It was easy enough to read for the college level and gave enough detail for basic knowledge of anthropology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Textbook July 1, 2013
By Kris S.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting and easy textbook to read and follow. The chapters are layed out in a way that it builds on each area that you have already read, so it helps you understand and retain the information that you are learning. It includes real life examples within the text, which always help you relate the information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obviously used, but still great January 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The newest version of this book that I need for a class is $130.00 and I got this book, one earlier edition, for $7.82. So I'm a happy camper :) REMEMBER STUDENTS! ALWAYS ASK YOUR TEACHER/PROFESSOR IF YOU CAN USE AN EARLIER EDITION OF YOUR TEXTBOOK!!!
