UNDERSTANDING HUMANS: INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY AND ARCHAEOLOGY shows students how anthropologists and archaeologists go about their work as they study human evolution, living nonhuman primates, human adaptation and variation, the origin and dispersal of modern humans, food production, the first civilizations of the Old and New Worlds, and so much more. Using a biocultural approach, the text balances the presentation of physical anthropology with archaeology and concludes with a new chapter that ties together the material on human biological and cultural adaptation by focusing on lessons learned from our species evolution such as the impact of humans on the environment. Students will also benefit from the new chapter opening learning objectives, At a Glance sections that summarize key concepts, and end-of-chapter Critical Thinking Questions that help students better understand the material and study more effectively for exams.

It is widely assumed that the “nonclassical” nature of the Russian empire and its equally “nonclassical” modernity made Russian intellectuals immune to the racial obsessions of Western Europe and the United States. Homo Imperii corrects this perception by offering the first scholarly history of racial science in prerevolutionary Russia and the early Soviet Union. Marina Mogilner places this story in the context of imperial self-modernization, political and cultural debates of the epoch, different reformist and revolutionary trends, and the growing challenge of modern nationalism. By focusing on the competing centers of race science in different cities and regions of the empire, Homo Imperii introduces to English-language scholars the institutional nexus of racial science in Russia that exhibits the influence of imperial strategic relativism. Reminiscent of the work of anthropologists of empire such as Ann Stoler and Benedict Anderson, Homo Imperii reveals the complex imperial dynamics of Russian physical anthropology and contributes an important comparative perspective from which to understand the emergence of racial science in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Europe and America.

The second edition of The Human Organism: Explorations in Biological Anthropologycovers essential topics in evolution, including evolutionary theory, basic genetics, primates, paleontology, and human variation. Featuring updated readings, this book uses a variety of materials ranging from Darwin's original works to popular science writing, to make the information interesting, timely, and relevant. The Human Organism teaches students that evolution is pertinent to daily life and that understanding evolutionary concepts can help them make informed health decisions, improve their relationships, and increase their understanding of others. Much of the material was selected specifically to help students see the important connections between evolution and contemporary human existence. This textbook also stimulates critical thinking by choosing material from key players in the field who have challenged conventional interpretations of the evidence. It encourages them to analyze data, research, and conclusions. The second edition engages students with activity pages at the end of each chapter. Activities range from map questions to well-crafted crossword puzzles. The Human Organism features over 150 illustrations, photos, and maps. Each chapter has a case study that highlights a controversy relevant to the topic of study to help students grasp abstract concepts and apply them to concrete questions. Accessible to students with little or no previous exposure to the subject matter, The Human Organism is well-suited to general education biological anthropology courses. Elizabeth Weiss earned her Ph.D. at the University of Arkansas. She is a professor of anthropology at San JosE State University, where she teaches courses on human evolution, human variation, primates, mummies, and bioarchaeology. Her research focuses on the study of skeletal anatomy to understand the effects of biology and environment on humans in order to draw conclusions about activity patterns and disease. Dr. Weiss has written three books and over two dozen articles for prestigious anthropology and medical journals including the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, the International Journal of Osteoarchaeology, and the Journal of Comparative Human Biology: Homo.
