Race and human evolution by Milford H Wolpoff( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 1,293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race and Human Evolution is a far-ranging account by leading researchers in the field that describes the latest scientific evidence and the conflicting theories about human evolution. Milford Wolpoff and Rachel Caspari describe the "Eve" or "Out-of-Africa" theory, which holds that all living people are the descendants of a single common ancestor ("Eve") who began a new species of humanity in Africa some 200,000 years ago and whose progeny spread throughout the world, giving rise to the different human races. The authors show that the evidence of the fossil record and genetic data support "Multiregionalism," which posits that for some two million years human populations have been entwined in a network of widespread peoples who evolved together because they met and interbred, giving the races today many ancestors, not a single common one. Race and Human Evolution shows how the debate over the "Eve" theory reflects a long history of theories about human origins and race that has been fraught with social and political implications. The debate now raging cannot free itself of this background. Certain to be controversial but also to illuminate an argument that has persisted for centuries and which persists in some of today's most inflammatory social and political issues, Race and Human Evolution provides an authoritative account of the science and the scientists behind the controversy over the origin of humanity and its racial differences

The last Neandertal( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among scientists, Africa is the undisputed birthplace of humanity. But anthropologists are split into two camps over other questions. How many waves of Homo sapiens migrated out of Africa? Did other highly developed hominid species--such as Homo neanderthalensis--make the same journey? And to what extent did these populations mingle and compete with each other? This program featuring prominent voices in the ongoing debate, presents differing viewpoints about the age and development of the Neandertal--and about how the vanished species figures in the story of modern humanity's rise

Debating humankind's place in nature, 1860-2000 : the nature of paleoanthropology by Richard G Delisle( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a really good book on the history of paleoanthropology--the study of human origins. In fact, there may not be a better book on the market that does what Delisle (McGill Univ.) does in summarizing how the issues of human origin and evolution have been addressed in the years following Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859). Delisle organizes the discussion chronologically into ten chapters, with an introductory chapter that presents a nice overview of how paleoanthropology has changed over the decades in terms of method and content. Adding to the book's usefulness are two essays by other paleoanthropologists: an opening statement by Milford Wolpoff and a closing essay by Bernard Wood. Both are excellent opinion pieces by eminent scholars in the field and add substantially to Delisle's discussion. Delisle includes an excellent biographical appendix that lists alphabetically the major paleoanthropologists whose work he discusses. The only (minor) complaint is the lack of artwork. Although Delisle includes a number of historical diagrams related to human origins, he misses a golden opportunity to help readers understand the myriad complexities of modern methods used to understand the human evolutionary tree and its complex array of branches.
