Book Description :

This textbook presents a survey of physical anthropology, the branch of anthropology that studies the physical development of the human species. It plays an important part in the study of human origins and in the analysis and identification of human remains for legal purposes. It draws upon human body measurements, human genetics, and the study of human bones and includes the study of human brain evolution, and of culture as neurological adaptation to environment. The authors use the progressive term "biological anthropology" to mean "an integrative combination of information from the fossil record and the human skeleton, genetics of individuals and of populations, our primate relatives, human adaptation, and human behavior."

Quantitative Anthropology: A Workbook contributes an anthropological perspective to quantitative methods. The book's authors address characteristics of quantitative data, entering and manipulating data in SPSS, graphical displays, distributions and measures of central tendency and dispersion, and including hypothesis testing with both parametric and nonparametric statistical tests. Increasingly complex exercises build on cumulative learning from chapter to chapter and stress the application of methods beyond coursework. The focus of the manual is on univariate statistical analysis, and the book is written to be accessible to higher level undergraduate students and graduate students in all fields of anthropology. Uses anthropological examples (from the subdisciplines of sociocultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology) to illustrate quantitative data techniques Integrates quantitative techniques with theoretical fluency, encouraging the reader to make connections between Big Picture questions in anthropology and the methods used to address those questions Focuses on the practical use of Excel and SPSS to apply quantitative methods to anthropological contexts Includes exercises in both parametric and nonparametric inferential statistics, as well as descriptive statistics
