<p><b>Study the science of all of us&nbsp;</b></p> <p>Anthropology&nbsp;is the organized study of what makes humans human. It takes an objective step back&nbsp;to view&nbsp;homo sapiens&nbsp;as a species and&nbsp;ask&nbsp;questions like:&nbsp;Given our common characteristics,&nbsp;why aren&rsquo;t&nbsp;all of us&nbsp;exactly&nbsp;the same? Why do people across the world have&nbsp;variable&nbsp;skin and hair color and&nbsp;so many inventive&nbsp;ways&nbsp;to say&nbsp;hello?&nbsp;And&nbsp;how&nbsp;can knowing the reasons behind&nbsp;our differences&mdash;as well as our similarities&mdash;teach us useful lessons for the future?&nbsp;The updated edition of&nbsp;<i>Anthropology&nbsp;For&nbsp;Dummies</i>&nbsp;gives you a panoramic view of&nbsp;the&nbsp;fascinating fieldwork and theory&nbsp;that&nbsp;seeks to&nbsp;answer these questions&mdash;and&nbsp;helps you&nbsp;view&nbsp;the human&nbsp;world&nbsp;through&nbsp;impartial,&nbsp;anthropological eyes.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Keeping the jargon to a minimum,&nbsp;<i>Anthropology&nbsp;For&nbsp;Dummies</i>&nbsp;explores&nbsp;the four main&nbsp;subdivisions of the discipline, from&nbsp;the&nbsp;adventurous Indiana Jones territory&nbsp;of archaeology and the hands-on biological insights&nbsp;provided by our physical nature&nbsp;to the&nbsp;studious&nbsp;book-cracking&nbsp;brainwork of cultural and linguistic investigation.
