Realistic and pragmatic in its approach, the theme deals without ambuiguity with all aspects of palaeoanthropology-including human evolution, origin, molecular clock, palaeodemography and palaeopathology. Understanding human Evolution covers all the general, skeletal, morphological characteristics, and traces the fossil record of anatomical changes in relation to the surrounding environments.
It is an essential reading for the undergraduate, postgraduate students and researchers interested in the subtle intertwining of relationships between the present day man and his fore-runners vis-à-vis the biological, ecological, geological, medical, behavioural and anthropological disciplines.
Basically, this book is a catalogue of facts on the evolution of ourselves and is designed to be used both as a textbook and a reference work.
This exhaustive source on human evolution fills the need for an authoritative and comprehensive single volume on the subject. It is remarkable for its clarity, and scholarship.
The book is very well illustrated. It as an extensive bibliography and a comprehensive cross-referencing which helps the readers to rapidly locate material/information they wish to consult. It is must for every student of anthropology.
