Overview

For courses in General Anthropology (Four Fields)

A comparative exploration of human cultures across space and time
Revel™ Anthropology
takes a unique and holistic approach to the study of anthropology with an emphasis on the biological, social and cultural aspects of human life. Transcending mere descriptions, the text explains not only what humans are and were like, but also how they got to be that way, in all their variety. Authors Carol Ember, Melvin Ember, and Peter Peregrine provide comparative, cross-cultural insights based on an evidence-based approach which is highly relevant today. The 15th Edition offers a streamlined narrative that makes it easier for instructors to cover all aspects of the discipline in a single semester, as well as thoroughly updated research that ensures an up-to-date learning experience.
