    Striding bipedalism is a mode of locomotion that defines our lineage. Bipedality freed the hands, arms and shoulders from the mechanical constraints of locomotion, an evolutionary innovation that has had an obvious impact on our species' fitness. As I will discuss in this dissertation, the shoulder blade (scapula) is shaped to optimize use of the upper limb in certain positions. Our closest living relatives (chimpanzees and gorillas) possess adaptations that likely increase efficiency in overhead use of the arms, as in forearm suspension or vertical climbing. The modern human shoulder, on the other hand, lacks such adaptations. This difference may reflect an evolutionary change in shape that occurred as our ancestors transitioned to a terrestrial way of life and became increasingly dexterous, eventually losing ancestral adaptations. On the other hand, recent discoveries suggest our lineage may have never possessed adaptations to suspension. Fossils from the shoulder of our early human ancestors are scarce. A recently discovered partial skeleton from Woranso-Mille (Afar Depression, Ethiopia), KSD-VP-1/1, preserves the oldest and most complete scapula of an adult Australopithecus afarensis individual. The intended contribution of this dissertation is to provide a comparative description of the new scapula (KSD-VP-1/1g) and to detail its implications for our understanding of anatomy and adaptation in the Australopithecus shoulder, and the evolutionary history of the modern human shoulder more generally.

    Ancestral DNA, Human Origins, and Migrations describes the genesis of humans in Africa and the subsequent story of how our species migrated to every corner of the globe. Different phases of this journey are presented in an integrative format with information from a number of disciplines, including population genetics, evolution, anthropology, archaeology, climatology, linguistics, art, music, folklore and history. This unique approach weaves a story that has synergistic impact in the clarity and level of understanding that will appeal to those researching, studying, and interested in population genetics, evolutionary biology, human migrations, and the beginnings of our species. Integrates research and information from the fields of genetics, evolution, anthropology, archaeology, climatology, linguistics, art, music, folklore and history, among others.

    Daniel Sullivan.
    "Cultural psychology and experimental existential psychology are two of the fastest-growing movements in social psychology. In this book, Daniel Sullivan combines both perspectives to present a groundbreaking analysis of culture's role in shaping the psychology of threat experience. The first part of the book presents a new theoretical framework guided by three central principles: that humans are in a unique existential situation because we possess symbolic consciousness and culture; that culture provides psychological protection against threatening experiences, but also helps to create them; and that interdisciplinary methods are vital to understanding the link between culture and threat. In the second part of the book, Sullivan presents a novel program of research guided by these principles. Focusing on a case study of a traditionalist group of Mennonites in the midwestern United States, Sullivan examines the relationship between religion, community, guilt, anxiety, and the experience of natural disaster"-- Provided by publisher.

    "Ethnoprimatology, the combining of primatological and anthropological practice and the viewing of humans and other primates as living in integrated and shared ecological and social spaces, has become an increasingly popular approach to primate studies in the twenty-first century. Offering an insight into the investigation and documentation of human-nonhuman primate relations in the Anthropocene, this book guides the reader though the preparation, design, implementation, and analysis of an ethnoprimatological research project, offering practical examples of the vast array of methods and techniques at chapter level. With contributions from the world's leading experts in the field, Ethnoprimatology critically analyses current primate conservation efforts, outlines their major research questions, theoretical bases and methods, and tackles the challenges and complexities involved in mixed-methods research. Documenting the spectrum of current research in the field, it is an ideal volume for students and researchers in ethnoprimatology, primatology, anthropology, and conservation biology"-- Provided by publisher.

    G. Richard Scott, Joel Irish.
    This guide to scoring crown and root traits in human dentitions substantially builds on a seminal 1991 work by Turner, Nichol, and Scott. It provides detailed descriptions and multiple illustrations of each crown and root trait to help guide researchers to make consistent observations on trait expression, greatly reducing observer error. The book also reflects exciting new developments driven by technology that have significant ramifications for dental anthropology, particularly the recent development of a web-based application that computes the probability that an individual belongs to a particular genogeographic grouping based on combinations of crown and root traits; as such, the utility of these variables is expanded to forensic anthropology. This book is ideal for researchers and graduate students in the fields of dental, physical, and forensic anthropology and will serve as a methodological guide for many years to come.

    The remains of past people are a testament to their lived experiences and of the environment in which they lived. Synthesising the latest research, this book critically examines the sources of evidence used to understand and interpret violence in bioarchaeology, exploring the significant light such evidence can shed on past hierarchies, gender roles and life courses. The text draws on a diverse range of social and clinical science research to investigate violence and trauma in the archaeological record, focussing on human remains. It examines injury patterns in different groups as well as the biological, psychological and cultural factors that make us behave violently, how our living environment influences injury and violence, the models used to identify and interpret violence in the past, and how violence is used as a social tool. Drawing on a range of case studies, Redfern explores new research directions that will contribute to nuanced interpretations of past lives.

    "Only recently was it determined that two of the world's most devastating plagues, the plague of Justinian and the medieval Black Death, were caused by distinct strains of the same pathogen. Use of paleomicrobiological techniques led to this discovery. This work is just one example of the historical mysteries that this emerging field has helped to clarify. Others, such as when tuberculosis began to afflict humans, the role of lice in plague pandemics, and the history of smallpox, are explored and further illuminated in Paleomicrobiology of Humans. Led by editors Michel Drancourt and Didier Raoult, the book's expert contributors address larger issues using paleomicrobiology. These include the recognition of human remains associated with epidemic outbreaks, identification of the graves associated with disasters, and the discovery of demographic structures that reveal the presence of an epidemic moment. In addition, this book reviews the technical approaches and controversies associated with recovering and sequencing very old DNA and surveys modern human diseases that have ancient roots."--Back cover.

    Based on twenty-four months of fieldwork, this dissertation explores how welfare -- the provision of social goods and supports -- is being configured through transnational medical intervention and public health policy in Mozambique. My research was concerned with how a variety of techniques, diagnoses, and criteria were used to mediate families' access to care and social supports as well as with the kinds of social and material opportunities these interventions made available. In a context marked by material scarcity far beyond the well-defined clinical criteria through which medical welfare supports were channeled, I was interested in how a variety of differently situated actors -- including health planners, donors, psychologists, counselors, and nurses, members of patients associations, volunteers, family members and patients -- defined, diagnosed, and accessed welfare needs. I also aimed to trace how legal and ethical norms structured and emerged out of these new welfare assemblages, and asked why and how contested, gendered family relationships came to be a privileged locus for these medical-social interventions. I investigated how planners, workers, patients and families negotiated institutional and everyday practices of care in order to understand how new modes of diagnosis, treatment, care, and social support for children and patients are taken up across a range of institutional and non-institutional sites. Based on this research, I argue that medical welfare interventions instantiate a new mode of governance in Mozambique, one in which the state not only provides services but also (even primarily) coordinates non-governmental endeavors and constitutes individuals and communities as available for humanitarian intervention. As a result, new forms of claims-making and claims-denying, including and beyond citizenship claims, are emerging in medical welfare spaces, as diagnoses of individual and community "vulnerability" become means of mobilizing new forms of care and material resources. Crucially, I suggest, these dynamics are shaped not only by contemporary development practice but also by historical legacies of colonialism, conflict and intervention that have shaped the politics of biomedical knowledge and transnational aid in contemporary Mozambique.
