As Pastoralists Settle

Author: Elliot Fratkin
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9780306485954
Release Date: 2006-03-30
Genre: Social Science

Throughout the world's arid regions, and particularly in northern and eastern Africa, formerly nomadic pastoralists are undergoing a transition to settled life.

Release Date: 2010-03-05
Genre: Social Science

The well-known team of Haviland, Prins, Walrath, and McBride continue to provide students with a vivid, thought-provoking edition of ANTHROPOLOGY that emphasizes the interconnections of the world's cultures and the relevance of the field of anthropology in their own lives. Known for its holistic, integrated approached to the four fields of anthropology, the book's rich visual program and cohesive framework enable students to more easily understand the impact of biology and culture in shaping behaviors and beliefs, and gain real insight into the usefulness of anthropology for living and working in the globalized world of the 21st century.

Evolution and Prehistory The Human Challenge

Author: William Haviland
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9780495812197
Release Date: 2010-03-05
Genre: Social Science

Offering compelling photos, engaging examples, and select studies by anthropologists in a variety of locations around the globe, Haviland, Walrath, Prins and McBride present evolution and prehistory in vivid, accessible terms, and show students how the field is relevant to understanding the complex world around them. The authors present the fundamental concepts from a holistic perspective using three unifying themes to frame the text: 1) the varied ways humans face the challenges of existence, 2) the connections between culture and biology in shaping the course of human evolutionary history as well contemporary beliefs and behavior, and 3) the impact of globalization on the continued survival of our species and planet. This edition offers a new Chapter 4, Primate Behavior, which examines the sophisticated behavior and communication abilities of the great apes and other anthropoid primates, as well as current ethical considerations over the use of primates in medical research. The vital issue of primate conservation is expanded and integrated into our survey of the living primates. Reorganized, streamlined, and richly illustrated human evolution chapters provide the same material vital for an introductory course in human origins as in previous editions but do so with fewer pages of text. In this edition, they have added new topics to the popular Globalscape, a map/story/photo feature that highlights specific examples of globalization and prompts students to think critically about its scope and consequences. Furthermore, the text’s strong supplements program provides instructors and students with a wealth of resources designed to enhance the teaching and learning experience.

The Bioarchaeology of Children

Author: Mary E. Lewis
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521836026
Release Date: 2007
Genre: Medical

This book is entirely devoted to the study of children's skeletons from archaeological and forensic contexts. It provides an extensive review of the osteological methods and theoretical concepts of their analysis. Non-adult skeletons provide a wealth of information on the physical and social life of the child from their growth, diet and age at death, to factors that expose them to trauma and disease at different stages of their lives. This book covers the factors that affect non-adult skeletal preservation; the assessment of their age, sex and ancestry; growth and development; infant and child mortality including infanticide; weaning ages and disease of dietary deficiency; skeletal pathology; personal identification and exposure to trauma from birth injuries, accidents and child abuse; providing insights for graduates and postgraduates in osteology, palaeopathology and forensic anthropology.
