About this book

Tattersall and Schwartz present evidence that many distinct species of humans have existed during the history of the homonid family, often simultaneously. Furthermore, these species may have contributed to one another's extinction.
`The book is an intellectual adventure that would be well worth undertaking for its intriguing denouement alone, but there is in addition a wealth of information stops en route.' Scientific American
