From the Back Cover:

Introduction to Evolutionary Anthropology represents a new, exciting perspective on the field of evolutionary anthropology for 1st year students at Universities and Colleges. In contrast to many standard and dull introductory textbooks on biological anthropology - this text explores evolutionary anthropology in a unique and lively manner. Since evolution is a topical and engrossing subject, this text examines the subject of evolution in a number of ways that reflect this fascination!

 

Key features:

 

1)      Focus on evolution. Each chapter deals exclusively with evolutionary concepts, particularly those that are rarely mentioned

         in other introductory textbooks

2)      Originality, personality, & energy. Unique examples and personal experiences are shared by the author to make seemingly     

         complex evolutionary concepts accessible to students.

3)      Chapter brevity. Chapters are short and concise, but not at the expense of coverage

4)      Illustrations, cartoons, & humour.  This book contains humorous anecdotes, illustrations, and cartoons, to help students see the

         humorous side of common misconceptions about evolutionary anthropology.
