This is the first textbook of Virtual Anthropology, the new science that combines elements from fields as diverse as anthropology, medicine, statistics, computing, scientific visualization, and industrial design. The book is intended for students in any of these or nearby fields within biology, medicine, or engineering and for teachers, journalists, and all others who will enjoy the many examples from our real biological world. After a general introduction to the field and an overview, the book is organized around six themes conveyed in more than 300 pages of text accompanied by hundreds of carefully annotated images: medical imaging and 3D digitising techniques, electronic preparation of individual specimens, analysis of complex forms in space one or many at a time, reconstruction of forms that are partly missing or damaged, production of real objects from virtual models, and, finally, thoughts about data accessibility and sharing and the implications of all this for the future of anthropology. The authors' emphasis is not on technical details but rather on step-by-step explanations of the wealth of examples included here, from brain evolution to surgical planning, always in light of the relevance of these approaches to science and to society. All readers are encouraged to try out the techniques on their own using the tools and data included in the Online Extra Materials resource.

For the first time, renowned gaming expert Martin Hackett brings together fantasy role-playing and fantasy wargaming.

The result is a complete gaming system, allowing experienced or novice players to explore a fictional world in character by taking part in adventures and going on to lead armies into battle, conquer territory and found empires. Fantasy role playing took off in the late 1970s with the rise of TSR's Dungeons and Dragons.

Fantasy wargaming, by contrast, is the clash of two or more mythical armies, played out with miniatures and scenery on a tabletop battlefield.
