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.
`...presents irrefutable evidence that the modern human species is a very recent evolutionary phenomenon and that while external characteristics may vary, beneath the skin we are all one extraordinarily closely related species' - Donald C Johanson
`This fascinating tour-de-force weaves human history, biology, genes, and language in one grand sweep' - Jared M Diamond
