About this book

Bryan Sykes brings together a world-class set of contributors to debate just what the links between genes, language and the archaeological record can tell us about human evolution. The eight lively essays offer widely differing options, pose more questions than they offer answers, eschew jargon, and pursue controversy.

Contents

Introduction; 1. Reflections on the archaeology of linguistic diversity; 2. The fossil record of the evolution of Homo sapiens; 3. Language classification: scientific and unscientific methods; 4. Human evolution: our turbulent genes and why we are not chimps; 5. Using genes to map population structure and origins; 6. Ancient DNA; 7. Language and genes in the Americas; 8. Human genetic diversity and disease susceptibility
