Through the Lens of Anthropology: An Introduction to Human Evolution and Culture 2nd edition (PDF) is a well written and concise introduction to anthropology that uses the twin themes of sustainability and food to illustrate the connected nature of the discipline’s many subfields. Beautifully illustrated throughout, with more than 150 full-color figures, images, feature boxes, and maps, this is an updated anthropology ebook with a fresh perspective, a lively narrative, and plenty of popular topics. The new second edition enhances the food and sustainability focus and builds a stronger narrative voice with extended case studies and examples. An entirely new section on decolonization, more Indigenous content, and updated material on biological anthropology make the 2nd edition even more relevant for those interested in learning more about the discipline of anthropology.


Through the Lens of Anthropology 2e is an innovative and exciting etextbook— not something I say lightly about any book. The examples are effective and current, the text is engaging, and the themes of food and sustainability provide enough flexibility to allow me to match the text to my own teaching goals. The second edition is even more impressive with a stronger focus on decolonization and Indigenous peoples integrated throughout. I look forward to using it in my own courses. Dr. Erin Halstad McGuire, Associate Teaching Professor, University of Victoria

Through a crystal-clear summary of the latest scholarship and the occasional burst of humor, professors Gonzalez and Muckle provide a stellar holistic view of all anthropological subfields in this introductory textbook. Comprehensive coverage is twinned beautifully with a sharp focus on issues of food and sustainability, which provides a unifying theme throughout. Students—as well as their instructors—will be energized by discussions of everything from decolonization to the accurate use of gender pronouns. My love of anthropology makes me yearn for a textbook that conveys both its excitement and its importance, and Through the Lens of Anthropology, 2nd edition, achieves this beautifully. (Barbara J. King, Professor Emerita, College of William and Mary)
