Of all human migrations, the most significant was that of the Mongoloid during the last Glacial period. Unrelated groups spread from their homeland in Asia through Siberia to the Americas, or across the Pacific, ultimately covering two-thirds of the earth's surface. This book takes a unique multi-disciplinary and international approach to the study of these migrations. By bringing to this model as many disciplines as possible--from molecular genetics and linguistics to archaeology and paleontology--a comprehensive picture is drawn which will not only shed light on this specific period of migration, but also help answer one of the greatest puzzles of evolutionary anthropology--the origin of Homo sapiens and the subsequent formation of different races and ethnic groups.
