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.
