Window on Humanity: A Concise Introduction to Anthropology https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260727033.jpeg 10 2023 9781260727036 Window on Humanity is a brief introduction to general anthropology. It covers the four subfields – biological anthropology, anthropological archaeology, sociocultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology – as well as anthropology’s two dimensions – academic and applied anthropology. Its shorter length increases instructor's options for assigning additional reading—case studies, readers, and other supplements within a one semester course. Window on Humanity can also work well in a quarter system, for which traditional texts may be too long. While presenting core concepts and topics, Window also aims to demonstrate anthropology’s relevance to the 21st-century world we inhabit. The text aims to instill an appreciation of human diversity, of anthropology as a field, and of how an anthropological approach can build on, and help make sense of, the experience that students bring to the classroom.
