This engaging overview of the field combines an accessible account of some of the discipline’s guiding principles and methodology with abundant examples and illustrations of anthropologists at work. This work is an objective introduction to morphology that does not assume that students have any previous knowledge of the subject. Carefully streamlined, making it more accessible and affordable, the book provides students with a program designed to facilitate comprehension. Every concept is carefully explained and illustrated, guiding students step-by-step through difficult material. Starting with the core areas, the book presents the interfaces between morphology and anatomy and between morphology and Embryology and morphology and Palaeontology. Theories presented clearly in accessible language with the main purpose of shedding light on the data, rather than as a goal in themselves. The author consistently draws on the best research available, making this the ideal book for both beginning students of anthropology, or anyone in a related discipline looking for a first introduction to morphology.
