DYNAMIC SUITE OF VISUAL AND INTERACTIVE RESOURCES

New videos on topics like the concept of race and the spread of Ebola enliven lectures and engage students. These videos are direct expansions on select corresponding "Anthropology Matters" features in the text—linking directly out from those features in the ebook—giving students a consistent, reinforcing learning experience between text and media. New animations help students visualise and understand challenging concepts such as genetics, mitosis and hominid evolution. And the InQuizitive adaptive learning system uses game-like elements and answer-specific feedback to help students master the course material outside of class.

COVERAGE OF CUTTING-EDGE RESEARCH AND DISCOVERIES

New and expanded coverage of important research and developments in the discipline includes epigenetics, fossil discoveries (including Homo naledi), the Kenyanthropus tools, the reconsideration of human origins in Africa, and updates on Neanderthal and Denisovan genome research.

NEW AND EASY-TO-USE RESOURCES

The Fourth Edition features a companion lab manual and workbook. The manual is customisable, flexible, balanced, highly visual and provides hands-on and critical thinking experiences for class. A new Interactive Instructor's Guide (IIG) provides a wealth of easy-to-implement resources in a single location. Instructor materials also include the new playing-card group game Origins.
