More About Introduction to Human Evolution by Gillian Crane-Kramer; Roman Gastrell Harrison
"Introduction to Human Evolution has been developed in direct response to student feedback on the standard textbook approach to the subject matter. Concise and filled with engaging images, the book makes evolution, primatology, and human variation appealing to today's learners. The book introduces readers to issues surrounding the theory of evolution, sheds light on questions about what evolution is or isn't, and discusses how we know what we think we do about it. Readers will learn about early hominins, the Australopithecines, and the genus Homo. The book also addresses population history and genetics, adaptation and acclimatization, and anatomically modern humans. It concludes with the big question--where will we go from here? Each chapter is a balance of text, exercises, graphs, and visuals. The exercise worksheets support independent learning, and answers are provided to allow for self-assessment. Introduction to Human Evolution is an excellent choice for courses in anthropology and biology. It is accessible to non-majors, but can also be used in introductory courses for science majors.
