Through the Lens of Anthropology: An Introduction to Human Evolution and Culture (PDF) is a concise but comprehensive introductory ebook that uses the twin themes of sustainability and food to illustrate the connected nature of anthropology’s 4 major subfields: archaeology; cultural; biological; and linguistic anthropology. By viewing the world through the lens of anthropology; students will learn not only about anthropological theories; methods; and ethics but also the ways in which anthropology is relevant to their everyday lives and embedded in the culture that surrounds them.
Beautifully illustrated throughout; with over 150 full-color images; feature boxes; figures; and maps; this is an anthropology textbook with a fresh perspective; a lively narrative; and plenty of popular topics that are sure to engage students. A strong pedagogical framework structures the ebook: every chapter features learning objectives; glossary terms; and chapter summaries; as well as review and discussion questions that guide students’ analysis of the topics; themes; and issues raised in the textbook. This ebook is very interesting to read; manageable to teach and succeeds at igniting interest in anthropology as a discipline.
“Many students will take just one elective course in anthropology. For that reason; it is important to use an ebook written for the student; and one they will enjoy reading; not a textbook written just to appeal to the professor. Through the Lens of Anthropology is the one textbook that achieves this goal. Highly recommended.” –— Vaughn M. Bryant; Texas A&M University
“Through the Lens of Anthropology is an innovative and exciting ebook—not something I say lightly about a textbook! The examples are effective; the text is engaging; and the themes of food and sustainability provide enough flexibility to allow me to match the text to my own teaching goals. It is also the first truly North American approach to four-field anthropology to cross my desk. This is a book that will appeal to instructors and students alike; and one that I look forward to using.” — Erin Halstad McGuire; University of Victoria
