Since the first edition of Physical Anthropology, over a quarter century ago, Stein and Rowe have been helping to teach physical anthropology to tens of thousands of students. In this new edition, these award winning teachers and authors continue to share their love of discovery with students in this balanced, objective introduction to physical anthropology that does not assume that students have any previous knowledge of the subject. Carefully streamlined, making it more accessible and affordable, this seventh edition provides students with a pedagogical program designed to facilitate comprehension. Every concept is carefully explained and illustrated, guiding students step-by-step through difficult material. Despite changes in organization and length, this text maintains its emphasis on three important themes. First, that anthropology is a holistic discipline, second, that human beings are an integral part of nature, and third, because humans depend on learned behavior, our maintenance of a balance with nature can be strengthened by an understanding of our evolutionary past. As always, Stein and Rowe use the most current data to unravel the mystery of the evolution of humankind, and to examine the dynamic relationship between humans and their environment.

The Land of Open Graves

Living and Dying on the Migrant Trail

Author: Jason De Leon

Publisher: Univ of California Press

ISBN: 0520958683

Category: Social Science

Page: 384

In his gripping and provocative debut, anthropologist Jason De León sheds light on one of the most pressing political issues of our time—the human consequences of US immigration policy. The Land of Open Graves reveals the suffering and deaths that occur daily in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona as thousands of undocumented migrants attempt to cross the border from Mexico into the United States. Drawing on the four major fields of anthropology, De León uses an innovative combination of ethnography, archaeology, linguistics, and forensic science to produce a scathing critique of “Prevention through Deterrence,” the federal border enforcement policy that encourages migrants to cross in areas characterized by extreme environmental conditions and high risk of death. For two decades, this policy has failed to deter border crossers while successfully turning the rugged terrain of southern Arizona into a killing field. In harrowing detail, De León chronicles the journeys of people who have made dozens of attempts to cross the border and uncovers the stories of the objects and bodies left behind in the desert. The Land of Open Graves will spark debate and controversy.

There is mounting scientific evidence that our planet was struck by a devastating cataclysm about 12,000 years ago. Global sea levels, as the result of rapidly melting polar ice rose by more than 300 feet in a very short period of time, causing the planet to become unstable.In Egypt, Peru, Bolivia, Lebanon and other locations we see the existence of ancient damaged but very sophisticated megalithic stone structures which we would be hard pressed to re-create today. They hint that once upon a time one or "Atlantean" civilizations indeed did exist

The Business of Biodiversity

These days, the business and sustainabilityA agenda is fast-moving. Business finds itself absolutely on the front line of the battle being waged between humankind (as the dominant species on the planet) and the rest of the living systems and creatures with which we share the planet. This will be seen in retrospect as a collective aberration of monstrous proportions (we are, in effect, making war on ourselves), but it is taking us a very long time indeed to wake up to the consequences of this aberration. The Business of BiodiversityA nails that mis-prioritisation with splendid eloquence. Once business people come to see that biodiversity still represents the primary resource for all our business activitiesA, then the business case for embedding biodiversity right at the heart of corporate strategy grows stronger by the day. By the same token, the societal case for putting biodiversity at the top of the agendaA rather than treating it as an irritating afterthought becomes overwhelming.
