9780072485981: Reflections on Anthropology: A Four-Field Reader

An outstanding complement to any introductory textbook in general anthropology, this new reader provides a balanced presentation of all four fields. Its 44 articles focus on topics not usually covered in depth in general textbooks; more than half of the selections were published between 2000-2002, and many address controversial topics (e.g., ethnic labels, poverty, evolution, gender issues). The articles show how anthropology can help each person understand his/her heritage, and how each human culture is unique in some aspects and yet similar to others.

About the Author:

Vaughn M. Bryant, Jr. joined the newly created Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Texas AAndM University in 1971 as their first anthropologist. In the fall of 1971, Dr. Bryant began his tenure at Texas AAndM University and taught the first anthropology course to 44 students. In 1975, Dr. Bryant was appointed Head of the new Anthropology Program, and in 1980 when Anthropology was made a separate department he was appointed as its first Head, a position he still holds. In 1974 Dr. Bryant received the Texas AAndM Association of Former Students Distinguished Achievement Award in Teaching. In 1990 he received the Texas AAndM Association of Former Students Distinguished Achievement Award in Administration. Dr. Bryant is internationally famous for his research in pollen analysis, prehistoric diets, and paleoethnobotany. More recently he has pursued research in forensic palynology.
