Abstract:

A highly comprehensive and illustrated account of what makes us what we are: how we evolved, how our bodies work and develop, and how we think and behave, this unbelievable reference examines the qualities all humans share but also highlights the diversity of human society and culture. Profiling more than 250 peoples who inhabit the world and examining fascinating facts - from environmental and health issues to beliefs and customs - Human is the definitive illustrated guide to our species. In the tradition of "Animal" and "Earth" comes a new definitive visual guide that takes a unique look at what it means to be a human being. From evolution and biology to society, culture, and the future aspects of human life, this book examines the qualities that all humans share and profiles more than 250 peoples who inhabit the world.
