The first introductory anthropology text to present and integrate a four-field perspective, while simultaneously integrating important topics such as ethics, methods, gender, and race in all chapters. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response to this upcoming text, we are making Anthropology available for use in summer and fall 2005 classes through a special Preliminary Edition Program. The Preliminary Edition of Anthropology is a black and white, half-priced, limited run version of the text Co-authors Barbara Miller and Bernard Wood, a world-renowned biological anthropologist, are joined by three of the brightest new scholars in archaeology and biological anthropology to provide complete and in-depth coverage of each of the four fields of anthropology. Anthropology incorporates the most current discoveries and research and their impact upon the “classics” in anthropology. Through a four-field approach and carefully chosen examples, the text illuminates the key ideas of the different sub-fields and demonstrates how their issues are connected and how anthropology is relevant to today's world. Beautifully illustrated, Anthropology maximizes the effectiveness of the art program by building pedagogy into the captions of photos, figures, tables and maps. The result is an original and unique text, which provides students with the most faithful and holistic representation of anthropology available today.
