About this book

A state-of-the-art account of how humans evolved from their immediately preceding ancestors. Leakey draws on his own personal involvement in many of the key discoveries of hominid fossils. As well as describing the physical changes that have taken place in human evolution, he also discusses the evolution of economic cooperation, of art, of language, and of consciousness itself. Now available as an audio-cassette package, which includes the complete paperback edition.
