Some brief overview of book

Since the first edition of Physical Anthropology , over a quarter century ago, Stein and Rowe have been helping to teach physical anthropology to tens of thousands of students. In this new edition, these award winning teachers and authors continue to share their love of discovery with students in this balanced, objective introduction to physical anthropology that does not assume that students have any previous knowledge of the subject. Carefully streamlined, making it more accessible and affordable, this seventh edition provides students with a pedagogical program designed to facilitate comprehension.

Every concept is carefully explained and illustrated, guiding students step-by-step through difficult material. Despite changes in organization and length, this text maintains its emphasis on three important themes. First, that anthropology is a holistic discipline, second, that human beings are an integral part of nature, and third, because humans depend on learned behavior, our maintenance of a balance with nature can be strengthened by an understanding of our evolutionary past.

As always, Stein and Rowe use the most current data to unravel the mystery of the evolution of humankind, and to examine the dynamic relationship between humans and their environment.
