About this book

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.
`Cavalli-Sforza and his colleagues have now given historical anthropology sophisticated tools to look at human variation, and to read that variation as a 'text' of human history.' Patrick V. Kirch, Nature
`A thoroughly readable account of some of the most fascinating ideas around.' New Scientist

Contents

Genes and history; a walk in the woods; of Adam and Eve; technological revolutions and gene geography; genes and languages; cultural transmission and evolution.
