Through the Lens of Anthropology: An Introduction to Human Evolution and Culture, Third Edition

By Robert J. Muckle, Laura Tubelle de González, and Stacey L. Camp

© 2022

Through the Lens of Anthropology is a concise introduction to anthropology that uses the twin themes of food and sustainability to illustrate the connected nature of the discipline’s many subfields. The third edition remains a highly readable text that encourages students to think about current events and issues through an anthropological lens.

Beautifully illustrated with over 150 full-color images and maps, along with helpful figures and boxes, this is an anthropology book with a fresh perspective and a lively narrative that is filled with popular topics. The new edition has been updated to reflect the most recent developments in anthropology and the contributions of marginalized scholars, while the use of gender-neutral language makes for a more inclusive text. New content offers anthropological insight into contemporary issues such as COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, and #MeToo.

Through the Lens of Anthropology continues to be an essential text for those interested in learning more about the relevance and value of anthropology. The third edition is supplemented by a full suite of updated instructor and student resources that can be accessed online.
