    Some of the reviews are pretty hilarious. Hopefully this will clear some things up. This is a book on Anthropology written around 1910, probably as a volume in a reference library similar to a set of encyclopedias. For what it is, this is an excellent resource for understanding the history of anthropology. Some of the information is out dated, but, some is actually still taught in university classes.This book can be downloaded for free at Gutenberg dot org.

    Fast shipping!! I got it sooner than the date prompted. Item was as described and good condition. The only problem was the package didn't have a tracking number, it got me alittle worried. Overall GREAT seller. If you decide to buy the later edition to Edition 13 of CAROL R EMBER, I recommend you getting this one instead of the new one save you money and it has almost the same thing as the 13th edition! So if your wondering if you should get it like did, I recommend!! I'm glad i did!!

    Again, a decent glimpse at the past making one want more. As I grow older I find myself more fascinated with the distant past.

    Very interesting reading. Mr. Marett explains automatically in his easy, yet profound vocabulary. It is a "fast", nice book. You have to say: Is that it?

    What can I say, its a previous edition. Its just a text book to get through a class. If you dig anthropology you will dig it, but if its just for a cake credit you will find it dull, like I do.
