Quotes and reviews

"Tim White and Pieter Folkens’s The Human Bone Manual is a terrific addition to the tool kit of osteologists and archaeologists. The book—concise, tightly written, and rich in photographic detail—will be the standard human identification reference for generations to come. Every field project or lab that deals with skeletal remains, ancient or modern, will depend on it."
- Clark Spencer Larsen, Distinguished Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences, The Ohio State University

"As a human osteology manual, this book is an excellent resource for archaeologists, palaeontologists and forensic anthropologists. It is a thoroughly written, well illustrated and can be highly recommended."
- Francis Thackeray, Transvaal Museum, Pretoria
South Africa

"This volume is a compact form of previously highly successful editions of Human Osteology by these same authors. In its newest form it is somewhat abbreviated, but is nevertheless an extraordinarily accurate and complete guide to all of the fundamentals of osteoanthropology. The illustrations retain their same vivid three dimensional quality as in previous editions, and the accuracy and thorough review of all major methods (aging, sexing, excavation, laboratory care, etc.) have been retained. It is the perfect companion text and manual for any undergraduate or graduate human osteology course, and is equally highly recommended as well to students of medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, chiropractic, etc., simply because it presents such clear and instructive presentations of fundamental human anatomy. It is, quite simply, the best human anatomy manual currently available."
- C. Owen Lovejoy, Kent State University
