Biografie (woord)

Michael P. Muehlenbein is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University, Bloomington.


'The editor clearly intends that this will stand as the authoritative desk reference for advanced students and professionals in the field. It may achieve this status for several reasons. The list of contributing authors is a virtual who's who of the anthropologists interested in the biology of modern people. Each chapter has study questions that may engage students. There is no other such compendium.' Jeffrey C. Long, The Quarterly Review of Biology
