Biological Anthropology: Concepts and Connections shows the relevance of anthropological concepts to today's students and encourages critical thinking. Throughout the text and especially in its many "Connections" features, Agustin Fuentes links anthropological concepts and questions to students' lives. One of the top scholars in the field of biological anthropology, Agustin Fuentes' current research looks at the big questions of why humans do what they do and feel the way they feel. He is committed to an integrated, holistic anthropological approach. Fuentes wrote this text to help answer the "so what" questions and make anthropological knowledge relevant to everyday life.
