Summary

Written by one of the prominent scholars in the field, this concise, up-to-date text provides a carefully balanced introduction to core topics in the four subfields of general anthropology--physical anthropology, archeology, linguistics, and cultural anthropology--as well as contemporary changes in the field. Since no single or monolithic theoretical perspective orients this book, instructors with a wide range of views and approaches can use it effectively. The combination of brevity and readability makeWindow on Humanitya perfect match for general anthropology courses that use readings or ethnographies along with a main text.
