Robert Lavenda, Emily Schultz

Professors Robert Lavenda and Emily Schultz, both in sociology and anthropology, authored a textbook published by Oxford University Press, "Anthropology: What Does It Mean to Be Human?" The book began as a revision of an earlier general anthropology textbook – its 24 chapters on biological, archaeological, cultural and linguistic anthropology were revised into a more user-friendly volume with 15 chapters. The two also co-wrote "Cultural Anthropology: A Perspective on the Human Condition," the latter published in English, Japanese, Bulgarian, Italian and Vietnamese editions by Oxford in November.
