Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human? takes a question-oriented approach that helps students understand current anthropological issues, consider them critically, and apply them to their own lives. A unique alternative to more traditional, encyclopedic introductory texts, Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human? takes a question-oriented approach that illuminates major concepts for students. Structuring each chapter around an important question, the authors explore what it means to be human, incorporating answers from all four major subfields of anthropology-cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and archaeology-and offering a more balanced perspective than other texts. They address central issues of the discipline, highlighting the controversies and commitments that are shaping contemporary anthropology. Ancillaries: -Companion Website featuring: -Student Resources, including a study skills guide, flashcards, self-quizzes, chapter outlines, and helpful links; and -Instructor Resources, including PowerPoint presentations for lectures, filmographies, activities, strategies for class discussions, and guest editorials; and (3) a chapter on human evolution -Computerized Test Bank and Instructor's Manual on CD -Cartridges for Course Management Systems

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I truly love this book. It treats all of the essential elements of an overview course in a sophisticated style with an abundance of maps and photographs."
-Rosalyn Howard, University of Central Florida


"More than any I have used, this text parallels the way in which I structure my introductory course. It is easy to read, has excellent chapter summaries, and the color photographs and drawings are much more engaging than those in other texts that I've used."
-Charles Riggs, Fort Lewis College


"This is the only anthropology text I have encountered that provides just about the right amount of fact, theory, and examples."
-Mary Theresa Bonhage-Freund, Alma College
