Product Description

Review

"This book should neither be on your coffee table nor in your waste–paper box. It should not even be on one of your book–shelves. It should be on your desk, within reach, and always immediately at hand whenever wanted. A good buy!" PalArch, January 2006 "This is an excellent book for reference and, for the intelligent student who wants to go into real depth, this is an effective, user–friendly and up–to–date resource." Institute of Biology, July 2006

From the Back Cover

The brief length and focused coverage of Human Evolution: An Illustrated Introduction have made this best–selling textbook the ideal complement to any biology or anthropology course in which human evolution is taught. The text places human evolution in the context of humans as animals, while also showing the physical context of human evolution, including climate change and the impact of extinctions. Chapter introductions, numerous drawings and photographs, and an essential glossary all add to the accessibility of this text.The fifth edition has been thoroughly updated to include coverage of the latest discoveries and perspectives, including: · New early hominid fossils from Africa and Georgia, and their implications · New archaeological evidence from Africa on the origin of modern humans · Updated coverage of prehistoric art, including new sites · New perspectives on molecular evidence and their implications for human population history.

Format: Paperback
I'm studying Zoology at university, and this textbook was reccommended for a course I was taking. It was very informative with easy to read chapters and great illustrations. I'd reccomend it to anyone who is studying or interested in human evolution, but it is an introduction and if you need something more in depth this probably isn't for you.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great detailed summary of the facts about human evolution - I was looking for a text that had specific detail about humans rather than general evolution facts. This book covers all the areas where scientific disciplines have found evidence. Well set out.

I ordered this textbook and the I book received was missing chapter 3. I arranged for a replacement to be sent, but the replacement also had chapter 3 missing! A couple of other people on my course have books with chapter 3 missing from Amazon.
This is very disappointing. I am in the middle of a course, for which this is a text book. I can't risk Amazon sending me another faulty book, and will have to source the item from elsewhere. The textbook itself is very good!
