Frank Spencer is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Queens College, City University of New York. He is the author of scientific articles and books that include a comprehensive study of the PiltdownAffair: Piltdown: A Scientific Forgery (1990) and ThePiltdown Papers (1990); also co-editor of the award winning book: The Origin of Modern Humans (1984) and editor of A History of American Physical Anthropology,1930-1980 (1982).
"The encyclopedia has tremendous breadth and depth, and it adds significantly to the literature." -- Library Journal "The encyclopedia provides historical depth as well as breadth absent from the narrower-purpose and strictly topical Dictionary of Concepts in Physical Anthropology." -- Rettig on Reference "This book is the first comprehensive encyclopedic treatment of the discipline of physical anthropology...the masterful editorial hand of Frank Spencer is manifest throughout the consistently readable text. History of Physical Anthropology is an important addition to the reference literature." -- Nature "The reference literature of physical anthropology has long needed a clear and comprehensive synthesis of historical aspects of this complex science. The present work fills the gap admirably. A solid work that will remain basic for any reference collection in the biological or social sciences well into the next century." -- Choice "Successful in presenting an overview of most aspects of the discipline in a readable form...indexes are excellent, with one listing entries by biographical names and the other by subject...The style overall is clear, brisk, and engaging...Exemplary bibliographies...are consistently provided at the ends of all articles...this new title fills a specific niche for research collections." -- Reference Books Bulletin/Booklist "Highly recommended for both undergraduate and graduate collections." -- Reference Quarterly
