Tracy Betsinger, Anthropology, has recently published a review of the book, “Built on Bones: 15,000 Years of Urban Life and Death” in the American Journal of Human Biology (30:e23088, 2018). This book is an overview of the field of bioarchaeology and illustrates what can be learned from bioarchaeological inquiry.
Brian Haley (Anthropology) has published a review of David Wallace Adams’ “Three Roads to Magdalena: Coming of Age in a Southwest Borderland” (Kansas, 2016) in the American Indian Culture and Research Journal. Adams’ award-winning book (the David J. Weber–William P. Clements Prize for best Southwestern nonfiction) offers a rich historical account of gradual adaptive ethnic accommodation and increasing ethnic boundary crossings in a tri-ethnic New Mexican community comprised of Navajos, Hispanics, and Anglos. With a focus on childhood and schools, Adams expertly demonstrates the real potential of children to act as agents of ethnic accommodation despite hegemonic forces.
