Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

What is anthropology? What can it tell us about the origin of our species? How does it inform today's most contested issues? Anthropology For Dummies, 2nd Edition will answer these questions and more. Step back in time to the world of our primate ancestors and dig into the rich science of archaeology. Follow the evolution of human language and communication. Explore race, ethnicity, identity, and gender, and see the modern world through an anthropologist's eyes.

Updates for this edition:

  • New fossil discoveries, including discussion of bipedal locomotion
  • The spread of humanity worldwide
  • Communication--how the mind manages information in short- and long-term memory registers
  • Increasing politicization of daily-life activities and increasingly polarized political life in many countries
  • Climate change and the prospect of continued global pandemics
