Overview

The Stages of Human Evolution / Edition 2

Of all the subjects that have provoked the play of human curiosity, few equal our concern with our own prehistoric origins. At the same, time, few subjects have been the target for so much unprofessional speculation. Although the present work does not reduce the quantity of speculations (quite the reverse), it is my hope that they can, technically at least, bear the label of professional speculations.
