Fine overview by the father of human historical genetics, who was among the first to ask whether the genes of modern populations contain a historical record of the human species. Genes, Peoples, and Languages comprises five lectures that serve as a summation of the author's work over several decades, the goal of which has been nothing less than tracking the past hundred thousand years of human evolution.

`A thoroughly readable account of some of the most fascinating ideas around.' New Scientist
