Biological Anthropology and Prehistory: Exploring Our Human Ancestry Second Edition Patricia Rice (West Virginia University) Norah Moloney (Instituteof Archaeology) Written specifically for courses that cover biological anthropology and archaeology, this beautifully illustrated text offers a balanced and up-to-date introduction to our human past. Highlights of the New Edition: Devoting equal time to biological anthropology and prehistory, this text exposes students to the many sides of major controversial issues and involves students in the scientific thought process. Amidst discussions of bones and artifacts, the text maintains a focus on people, demonstrating to students how biological anthropology and archaeology are relevant to their lives today. Featuring the latest research from original sources, this new text is far and away the most up-to-date text available. The superior art program features hundreds of photographs and figures, and the multimedia presentation options include documentary film clips and lecture launcher videos. What the reviewers are saying I consider Rice and Moloney to be an excellent basic handbook for undergraduate anthropology students focusing on either biological/physical anthropology and/or archaeology I know of no other text that contains this basic canon of knowledge within the covers of one book. Teryl E. Schessler, California State University- Fullerton The general approach is highly descriptive and even-handed with respect to controversial issues. As such it is easily readable, would be comfortable to teach, and is well- illustrated. Joan Brenner Coltrain, University of Utah Every chapter in this book is extremely well done and it is very much up to date. Joanna Casey, University of South Carolina A solid introduction to human biological and cultural evolution. James A.
