About this book

From the author of many seminal works, including Mammals of East Africa this work argues that man is a species shaped primarily by technology, and that we are thus a species that has chiefly created and recreated itself through adaptation and selection. Kingdon also believes that this precarious relationship may also destroy us, as evidenced today by over-population, the depletion of resources, and deforestation. A fascinating and thorough book.
"The work of a man of enlarged curiosity. It is a deeply challenging and important book." - New Scientist.
