Sinopsis:

This text is designed for instructors who want to devote time to archeology in their physical anthropology course. It combines treatment of interrelated disciplines (physical anthropology and archeology) and emphasizes human biological and cultural development. It stresses the importance of the biocultural approach and the techniques of paleoanthropology for discovering information about the human past. Photo essays are also included.

About the Author:

William Turnbaugh received his Ph.D. from Harvard University. His specialties include New World prehistory, Northeastern archaeology, and cultural ecology. He currently teaches at the University of Rhode Island.

Robert Jurmain received an A.B. in Anthropology from UCLA and a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from Harvard. He taught at San Jose State University from 1975 to 2004 and is now Professor Emeritus. During his teaching career, he taught courses in all major branches of physical anthropology, including osteology and human evolution, with the greatest concentration in general education teaching for introductory students. His research interests are skeletal biology of humans and non-human primates, paleopathology, and paleoanthropology. In addition to his three textbooks, which together have appeared in 30 editions, he is the author of STORIES FROM THE SKELETON: BEHAVIORAL RECONSTRUCTION IN HUMAN OSTEOLOGY (1999, Gordon Breach Publishers), as well as numerous articles in research journals.

Harry Nelson received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Nelson originally studied cultural anthropology, and broadened his teaching and research interests to include both cultural and physical anthropology. Dr. Nelson pursued his interest in physical anthropology when he teamed with colleague Dr. Robert Jurmain to develop a new text. The resulting first edition of INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY appeared in 1979, and has regularly been revised and updated since that time. Dr. Nelson taught at Foothill College, CA., until his retirement. In December 2000, following a long illness, Dr. Nelson passed away.
