African exodus : the origins of modern humanity by Chris Stringer( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Christopher Stringer and Robin McKie's research we learn that we are a young species that rose like a phoenix from a crisis that threatened our survival and then conquered the world in a few millennia. "We emerged out of Africa," the authors contend, "less than 100,000 years ago and replaced all other human populations." Our genes betray this secret of common racial heritage; further, the apparent racial distinctions of modern humans that have given rise to centuries of prejudice and inequality are shown to be merely geographical variants. Drawing on impressive fossil and genetic evidence and writing in an exceptionally readable style, Christopher Stringer, the primary architect of the Out of Africa model, and science writer Robin McKie challenge a long-held assumption that our species evolved separately as different races with ancient genetic roots, reaching back two million years. Instead, the authors go beyond the incomplete fossil record to the nuclear genome, "from the bones of the dead to the blood of the living," to tell the dramatic story of how our species thrived while others, including Neanderthals, died out. They argue persuasively that though modern humans may not always look alike, our biological constitutions are unvarying: An Eskimo and an Australian aborigine, a Chinese and a Swede - people worlds apart - are more alike than two gorillas from the same forest. It is the same DNA lineage that points unmistakably to a common ancestor whose offspring evolved into Homo sapiens shortly before the African exodus. By revealing the fount of all humanity while also exposing one of the most important and bitter debates in contemporary science, African Exodus reaches beyond paleoanthropology to politics and culture to answer definitively The Bell Curve
The complete world of human evolution by Chris Stringer( Book )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 1,387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An account of the rise and eventual domination of humans examines the technology used to study fossilized remains, traces the evolution of apes and humans, and explains the development of human behaviors
The Human revolution : behavioural and biological perspectives on the origins of modern humans by Peter Andrews( Book )

28 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In nontechnical language, Human Evolution traces the development of our ancestors through time from the primate Aegyptotithecus, which lived thirty million years ago, to the emergence of modern humans. The text contains extensive descriptions based on fossil evidence of various ancestral groups, where and when they lived, their adaptations to their environment, differences between groups, and how groups were related. Each description is brought to life with a painting by Maurice Wilson reconstructed from the fossil evidence of not only the group concerned but also of the plants and other animals alive at that time
Lone survivors : how we came to be the only humans on earth by Chris Stringer( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outlines a reassessment of human evolution that draws on recent fossil findings and challenges current theories to say that humans coexisted and competed across the African continent while exchanging genes, tools, and behaviors
In search of the Neanderthals : solving the puzzle of human origins by Chris Stringer( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What, then, was the fate of the Neanderthals? Stringer and Gamble argue that, capable and intelligent as they were, they eventually proved no match for the better-organized, better-equipped newcomers. They did not evolve into modern humans: they simply died out. This important study, incorporating a photographic catalogue of key fossil finds, provides the most up-to-date account of current knowledge about the Neanderthals and their world. For anthropologists, archaeologists, ecologists, evolutionary biologists, palaeontologists - for anyone interested in where we came from - it is essential reading

The human story : our history, from the Stone Age to today by James C Davis( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthropology professor Charles Lockwood tells the amazing story of human evolution in a concise and compelling introduction to all our ancestors and extinct relatives. He draws on the explosion of discoveries made over the past 20 years to demystify the fascinating cast of characters who hold the secret to our origins, and describes the main sites, individual fossils, key scientific breakthroughs, and latest research that have fed our knowledge. With the help of a rich assortment of photographs, reconstructions, and maps, Lockwood takes us from the earliest hominins, who date back six or seven million years ago, to contemporary homo sapiens, providing the basic facts about each species: what it looked like, what it ate, how and when it lives, and how we know this information. Created in association with London's Natural History Museum, this is a truly readable, up-to-date, well-illustrated, and user-friendly summary of the evidence as it stands today. ...

The ancient human occupation of Britain by Nick Ashton( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ancient Human Occupation of Britain Project (AHOB) funded by the Leverhulme Trust began in 2001 and brought together researchers from a range of disciplines with the aim of investigating the record of human presence in Britain from the earliest occupation until the end of the last Ice Age, about 12,000 years ago. Study of changes in climate, landscape and biota over the last million years provides the environmental backdrop to understanding human presence and absence together with the development of new technologies. This book brings together the multidisciplinary work of the project. The chapters present the results of new fieldwork and research on old sites from museum collections using an array of new analytical techniques. Features an up-to-date treatment of the record of human presence in the British Isles during the Palaeolithic period (700,000 - 10,000 years before present) Takes multidisciplinary approach that includes archaeology, geochemistry, geochronology, stratigraphy and sedimentology Coincides with the culmination of the AHOB project in 2010, providing a benchmark statement on the record of human occupation in Britain that can be utilized and tested by future research

The last Neandertal( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 27 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
