The Pacific islanders by W. W Howells( Book )

16 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who are the peoples of the Pacific Islands? How and when did they get there? Where did they come from? How did they overcome the obstacles of crossing water and of surviving in the new places? In this book a leading anthropologist uses the most recent discoveries of anthropology, archaeology and linguistics to answer these questions. More particularly, the author reviews the settlement of Australia by the Aborigines -- modern man arriving over 30,000 years ago, about the same time as modern man arrived in Europe -- and then the gradual movement of a similar people, the Melanesians out of Indonesia and into the islands, bringing with them an early form of horticulture. The special story of the Polynesians, beginning about 3,500 years ago, is now beginning to clear ; and the remaining problems of Polynesian and Micronesian prehistory are outlined. Using the wealth of new information available to scholars, this is the first synthesis of the latest facts and interpretations from physical anthropology, archaeology, and language studies to give a picture of the past of the entire Pacific ...." -- Inside front cover

Getting here : the story of human evolution by W. W Howells( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three individuals left these footprints in East Africa 3.7 million years ago. Walking upright on a human foot, these two adults and a child had crossed a threshold in the long path from vertebrates, mammals, and primates to enter and dominate a new world. They were not alone. Others, related and descended in ways not clear, spread out, flourished, and disappeared: some became people of today. Although we now know a great deal of the story and new information is arriving ever more rapidly, there is still much to be learned about how our ancestors became us. We do know that we arrived not because we were inevitable, but by luck and happenstance along the way. And we know there were other kinds of humans that might be here today but are not

Multivariate statistical methods in physical anthropology : a review of recent advances and current developments by G. N. van Vark( Book )

12 editions published in 1984 in English and Dutch and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physical anthropologists, like other research workers, are recognizing that the standard multivariate statistical techniques of recent decades are in need of refinement and greater precision. Increasingly it is felt that more sophisticated methods are called for, specifically designed for the materials and problems at issue. To this end the editors were asked by organizers of the First Intercongress of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences to develop a symposium on this general subject. With the title of this book, the symposium was held in Amsterdam on April 23-25, 1981. Invited were mathematical statisticians who were known to have an acquaintance with and interest in anthropological problems, together with anthropologists and human geneticists who consider multivariate methodology essential for their research. This volume constitutes an updated and revised selection from among the papers presented, together with a few supplementary papers by authors who were not present but whose work fills out the intended coverage and makes the volume more complete with respect to the state of affairs in the field. The papers are devoted both to new methodology and to its practical application. Mathematical statisticians may wish to know more about the biological nature and the kinds of materials and samples on which mathematical thinking can be exercised. Anthropologists as practitioners may not be fully aware of the possibilities and limitations in particular mathematical models and methods. Our purpose has been to bring the two groups together, for personal discussions across disciplinary lines as well as within disciplines
