Window on humanity: a concise introduction to anthropology, 4th edition

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Kottak, Conrad. 2010. Window on humanity: a concise introduction to anthropology, 4th edition. New York: McGraw-Hill.

Written by one of the prominent scholars in the field, this concise, up-to-date text provides a carefully balanced introduction to core topics in the four subfields of general anthropology--physical anthropology, archeology, linguistics, and cultural anthropology--as well as contemporary changes in the field. Since no single or monolithic theoretical perspective orients this book, instructors with a wide range of views and approaches can use it effectively. The combination of brevity and readability make Window on Humanity a perfect match for general anthropology courses that use readings or ethnographies along with a main text.
