This supplementary reader offers both historical and contemporary articles that demonstrate the nature of biological anthropology. With nearly one-third of the selections focusing on living populations, the 43 readings cover the entire range of bioanthropological studies: evolution, nonhuman primates, human paleontology, and modern human groups. Twelve of the 43 articles are new to this edition, including Kari Bruwelheide and Douglas Owsley's "Written in Bone: Reading the Remains of the 17th Century"; Carl Zimmer's "What is a Species?"; Daniel E. Lieberman's "Homing In On Early Homo"; and Sally Lehrman's "Going Beyond X and Y."
