Author Letter Dear Colleague, It is our pleasure to be able to bring you the third edition of our textbook Biological anthropology: the natural history of humankind.We are writing to you to share some highlights from the new edition. We have done our best to keep the book comprehensive, cutting edge, and accessibly readable. Over the past three years, new fossil discoveries, new revelations about primate behavior, and new breakthroughs in molecular biology have made an update of our previous edition essential. As always, we have endeavored to provide students and instructors with the very best coverage of these issues, and also the best photographs and images available. We believe that Biological anthropology offers you an outstanding choice in its comprehensive coverage of topics as well as its clarity, originality, critical-thinking approach, and presentation of beautifully done artwork and photography. All the traditional topics covered in other introductory biological anthropology texts are covered in detail. We also treat topics that are rarely covered in traditional texts, but are at the cutting edge of field. These include biomedical anthropology, brain evolution, and forager societies. In addition, new aspects of the third edition include: * Updated treatment of recent discoveries of Australopithecus sediba, Ardipithecus ramidus, Darwinius, and Denisova hominins, plus advances in the study of Ancient DNA of Neandertals * New discoveries about chimpanzee culture, including the latest research on tool use and hunting * Updates on genetics, including ancient DNA and population genetics * Expanded treatment of evolutionary aspects of human health and disease * New photographs of fossils, primates, and other subjects * New anatomical illustrations, featuring systematic redrawing of fossil and osteological artwork by medical artists Each chapter of the book now contains an updated visual summary. We wrote the first edition of Biological anthropology because, as teaching assistants during our graduate school days, we were disappointed in the overall quality of other books that were available. We are very pleased that Biological anthropology has become a leader in the biological anthropology textbook market. We are, as always, grateful for feedback from instructors and we try our best to incorporate updates to both the content and appearance of the book with instructor needs in mind. We realize that you, the instructor, have a choice of books to assign and we were committed to producing a new third edition that would meet your needs and those of students in this fascinating field of study. Sincerely yours, Craig Stanford John S. Allen Susan c. Anton
