About this title


From Lucy to Language provides an accessible and up-to-date presentation of the evidence for human evolution: the fossils, artifacts and artwork that paleoanthropologists and archaeologists have discovered and debated during the past century and a half. Produced by a collaboration of scientific, photographic and journalistic talent, this visually stunning and intellectually satisfying volume is valued by professional and armchair anthropologists alike. From Lucy to Language showcases the specimens behind the science of paleoanthropology. The 200 colour illustrations, including many reproduced at actual size, feature the most significant early human skulls and other original fossils and artifacts. THE AUTHORS.


In recent decades new fossil discoveries have redefined perceptions of human evolution at a remarkable pace, making it nearly impossible for the general reader to find an up-to-date account of the subject. This large-format book by science writer Edgar and paleoanthropologist Johanson--discoverer of the famous partial skeleton of "Lucy," a female hominid who lived 3.2 million years ago--gives as complete a picture as is presently known. Much mystery remains, but the earlier view of human evolution as a linear progression from apes through the hominids to the various homo species has been replaced by a more treelike analogue, one with many branches of upright-walking hominids. Truly a photo album of hominid history, the volume includes more than 200 color pictures of the major fossil discoveries, each with explanatory text.
