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.
