PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: In preparing this edition every effort was made to strengthen the features that made earlier editions so popular in introductory anthropology, physical anthropology, and human evolution courses. This book treats all the subdisciplines and relatives of physical anthropology such as genetics, modern variation and adaptation, and the behavior of non-human primates. But it focuses on paleoanthropology, the science that fits together the fossil and cultural evidence of human evolution into a coherent statement. Through the books eighteen chapters, the reader sees what we know of how, when, and where we came to exist. The investigation of our past is exciting, and "Humankind Emerging" conveys the excitement to readers and students alike who are studying physical anthropology for the first time. Each short chapter relates a story of discovery while expounding an important topic, with a minimum of technical language. The books tries to emphasize ideas and hypothesis, perhaps at the expense of data, rather than to swamp the reader in the vast accumulation of facts upon which the hypotheses are based. This edition includes the most recent fossil finds as well as the latest interpretations of both new and older discoveries. There are photographs, drawings, and charts to render visual assistance in learning where we came from, who we are, and how we know. PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: REVIEW: Absolutely the most comprehensive and readable text on human evolution available. An accessible and easily digestible textbook for beginning college students and interested enthusiasts of anthropology, archaeology, and the ancient history of mankind. Adapted in part from materials published by Time-Life Books in two series: The Emergence of Man, and The Life Nature Library. READER REVIEWS: REVIEW: This book focuses on paleoanthropology and brings the newer discoveries in genetics and in fossil finds together in newer interpretations. This edition has a chapter on the behavior of monkeys and apes, drawing on recent research in primatology. Contents: Evolution.-The Origin of Humankind.-The Evolution of Humankind.-Modern Humanity. REVIEW: This book is a complete study of mankind. From prehistory to present, riddles of heredity and social behavior. Valuable text covering all aspects of human evolution. Ideal for second year anthropology students or serious enthusiast of human history. REVIEW: This text covers the basis of human evolution. It is written and presented well. This is a very controversial topic, but after reading the text the reader finds that there is an abundant amount of evidence for evolution. For me, it puts any controversy to rest - there's science on one hand, and "not" on the other. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
