This long awaited core textbook in the study of evolution takes a similar approach to the subject as does Roger Lewin's classic text, Human Evolution, but goes a step further. The many important discoveries and new evidence that have emerged since the last edition of Human Evolution make this new text a timely and necessary addition to any introductory evolution course.


  • Coverage of the three new species of early human discovered in recent years.
  • Discussion of the new fossil and genetic evidence on the origin of modern humans.
  • An entire chapter on the Neanderthals.
  • A full treatment of modern evolutionary theory.
  • Extensive coverage of recent advances in molecular and morphological systematics.

Book Description:

Principles of Human Evolution presents an in-depth introduction to paleoanthropology and the study of human evolution. Focusing on the fundamentals of evolutionary theory and molecular genetics approaches to important questions in the field, this timely textbook will help students gain a perspective on human evolution in the context of modern biological thinking.The second edition of this successful text features the addition of Robert Foley, a leading researcher in Human Evolutionary Studies, to the writing team. Strong emphasis on evolutionary theory, ecology, and behavior and scores of new examples reflect the latest evolutionary theories and recent archaeological finds. More than a simple update, the new edition is organized by issue rather than chronology, integrating behavior, adaptation, and anatomy. A new design and new figure references make this edition more accessible for students and instructors.

This timely textbook places particular emphasis on evolutionary theory and molecular genetics approaches to important questions in the field. The highly anticipated Principles of Human Evolution will help students gain a perspective on human evolution in the context of modern biological thinking.
