9780521020312: The Evolution of Modern Human Diversity: A Study of Cranial Variation (Cambridge Studies in Biological and Evolutionary Anthropology)

Exactly how modern humans evolved is a subject of intense debate. This book deals with the evolution of modern humans from an archaic ancestor and the differentiation of modern populations from each other. The first section of the book investigates whether modern populations arose from regional archaic hominid groups that were already different from each other, and argues that in fact, most lines of evidence support a single, recent origin of modern humans in Africa. Dr. Lahr then goes on to examine ways in which this diversification could have occurred, given what we know from fossils, archaeological remains and the relationships of existing populations today.

Book Description:

There are two main theories as to how humans evolved. The first suggests that modern humans evolved from several regional groups of people, already different from one another, and the second, that there was a single ancestral group in Africa, In this exciting new book, Dr. Marta Lahr presents evidence from fossils, archaeological remains and studies of the relationships of modern populations to argue for the 'Out of Africa' option. This book will be a must for all those interested in human evolution.

Review:

"...provides valuable insights and hypotheses on the possible ancient population dynamics of our species." John H. Relethford, The Quarterly Review of Biology
