"This is the best introductory book out there. Marks is a very effective and clear writer with an engaging and personal style. He does a wonderful job of placing biological anthropology appropriately within its theoretical and disciplinary context."--Adam Van Arsdale, Wellesley College
"The Alternative Introduction to Biological Anthropology is in a class of its own. It is a very approachable text injected with humor to grab students' attention."--Amelia Hubbard, Wright State University
"I like the critical approach that this book takes. Marks gives great examples that serve to illustrate his points clearly. I also like the direct, dynamic, and intelligent writing style."--Debbie Guatelli-Steinberg, Ohio State University
"The Alternative Introduction to Biological Anthropology is infused with perspective and personality. It is unique, effective, and successful. The book's pedagogical approach is why I use it. It reminds us that science is a human endeavor and therefore subject to human imperfections."--Thad Bartlett, University of Texas at San Antonio
"The most remarkable aspect of this book is how much material is covered in so little space. I am most impressed with Marks's talent for compressing so many important ideas in succinct, meaningful summaries. There is not a wasted word in this book."--Virginia Betz, Phoenix College
