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. Delle, Kutztown University
