From the Back Cover:

Drawing links between genetic and cultural development, this textbook on human evolution offers students a unique combination of cultural anthropology and genetics.

For too long, cultural anthropology and science have been portrayed as antagonistic. The authors believe that this is misguided and that recent findings in genetics and anthropology indicate that, to the contrary, a fruitful analysis of human culture and evolution demands. integration of these fields of study. This text unifies cultural and genetic concepts: Genes, Culture, and Human Evolution demonstrates that empirical genetic evidence, based on modern DNA analysis and population studies, provides an excellent foundation for understanding human cultural diversity.
