9780521408646: Man's place in evolution (Natural History Museum Publications)
The second edition of Man's Place in Evolution explores how human beings are related to other animals and to the various fossil humans that have been discovered. The book begins with living animals and shows why chimpanzees and gorillas are thought to be our closest living relatives. Later chapters investigate the fossil evidence used to discover who were the first human beings, when people used fire, when they began to farm and many other fascinating aspects of human evolution. Several chapters have been redesigned and new illustrations have been added to clarify this lively book. Man's Place in Evolution has been prepared by the staff of the Natural History Museum in London.

Review:
..".written for those who know very little about human origins and who wish to get a clear, colorful introduction, in large part through illustrations. Indeed they can. Moreover, this handy little volume is valuable not only for those who are new to our discipline, but also for anthropologists who do not teach human evolution and who need a user-friendly refresher course in the basics." Helen Fisher, American Journal of Physical Anthropology
