About this book

Explains how anthropologists use genetic information to test theories and find answers to fundamental questions.
"This is another of Relethford's fine books on human evolution. Very well written and without sensationalism, it clearly explains the nature of genetic reasoning about the past and the use of ancestors. His illustrations and easy explanations will make this fascinating subject understandable to anyone." Kenneth M Weiss, Penn State Univ.
