From the Publisher“This book lives up to itstitle. It provides aninvigorating and well-informed overview of human genetic andcultural evolution, one that transcends the disciplinary boundariesthat become an irrelevance to a full understanding of where we comefrom, out nature and origins.” (Anthropos,2009)
"The important branch of evolutionary anthropology thatconcentrates on the co-evolution of genes and culture has been inneed of its definitive textbook. Here it has found its perfectexpression in one of those rare texts that is also a grandsynthesis and a contribution in its own right." Robin Fox,University Professor of Social Theory, Rutgers University
"Stone and Lurquin have integrated what we know about bones,genes, and languages to produce a uniquely valuable account. Byfocusing on the science of human evolution, the authors avoid thestultifying debates about what is culture and does it evolve. Withthis volume, evolutionary anthropology becomes a coherentdiscipline accessible to all students and scholars in the humansciences." Marc Feldman, Stanford University
"The first textbook that uses evolutionary theory to combine thestudy of human culture and genetics."
