About this book

This volume presents the results of over forty years of reserch from one of the world's leading human geneticists. Cavalli-Sforza proposed that the evolutionary past of humankind could be reconstructed through the analysis of current genetic data. This book traces the history of one of the most ambitious scientific projects of this century.

`This fascinating tour-de-force weaves human history, biology, genes, and language in one grand sweep' - Jared M Diamond
