Review:


"This book is enticing and comprehensive. I really appreciate how the authors are able to boil down complex topics in a straightforward fashion. It is the genius that Lavenda and Schultz possess that allows them to locate and describe insights about the material that others would simply gloss over."--Frank L'Engle Williams, Georgia State University


"Anthropology is the most sophisticated of any textbook I have reviewed. It remains relatively unique in the four fields and is very effective."--Jason Antrosio, Hartwick College


"Lavenda and Schultz's Anthropology is much more accessible and more clearly written than other texts for non-science majors. Their prose is accessible and engaging."--Stephen D. Glazier, University of Nebraska
