Exploring Biological Anthropology - The Essentials (4th Ed)
By Craig Stanford, John S. Allen, Susan C. Antón
Pearson | January 2016 | ISBN-10: 0134014014 | True PDF | 528 pages | 76 mb

Present a concise overview of biological anthropology, from early foundations to recent innovations
Exploring Biological Anthropology: The Essentials combines concise coverage of the foundations of the field with modern innovations and discoveries, helping students understand, and get excited about, the discipline. Because the authors conduct research in three of the main areas of biological anthropology–the human fossil record (Susan Antón), primate behavior and ecology (Craig Stanford), and human biology and the brain (John Allen)–they offer a specialist approach that engages students and gives them everything they need to master the subject. The Fourth Edition continues to present traditional physical anthropology within a modern Darwinian framework, and includes coverage of contemporary discoveries to highlight the ever-increasing body of knowledge in biological anthropology.
