Anthropology 1e was the first introductory anthropology text to integrate a four-field perspective and address topics such as research methods, ethics, theory, globalization, gender, race and ethnicity throughout. Continuing with this tradition in Anthropology 2e, author Barbara Miller is joined by three of the brightest new scholars in archaeology and biological anthropology to provide complete and current coverage of each of the four fields of anthropology. It incorporates up-to-date research and the latest discoveries and their impact on the “classics” in anthropology. It illuminates the basics of the four fields and demonstrates how they are connected. Through carefully chosen examples and exercises it shows how anthropology is relevant to today's world. Beautifully illustrated, it maximizes the effectiveness of the art program by building pedagogy into the captions of photos, figures, tables and maps. It is an original and unique text, which provides students with the most faithful and holistic representation of anthropology available today.
