'This book more than fulfils its said mission. The author has introduced a wealth of information served up into a highly digestible format. Whatever the research focus, this book engenders an integrated appreciation for evolution, adaptation, and disease processes. Dental Anthropology is of the superb quality we have come to expect from Cambridge University Press. this is not only a timely book providing an introduction to or reinforcing our foundation, but a volume necessary for all students of dental anthropology, novice or veteran, studying teeth in any context.'
