About this book

World-renowned expert on fossil humans and lemurs, Tattersall here looks for the discontinuities in human evolution - at what really makes us different from other species and what makes us quintessentially human. He searches ancient sites for culture as well as fossils, and brings us cutting-edge research on other primates' `language', tool making and social cooperation. A rich tour de force by one of the most outstanding students of human evolution.
`...the best book on human evolution I've ever read' Niles Eldridge.
