Review

"Dazzling." --"Boston Globe Book Section"

"[An] intriguing little book."--"American Scientist"

"An intelligent disquiet runs through these pages."--"New York Times Book Review"

"Relax and enjoy. It's a good read, and it makes you think."--"New Scientist"

"A creative and compelling synthesis of ideas, Smail's book provides an engaging and invigorating analysis of our history."--"Science (Aaas)"

"A provocative thesis. . . . Radically rethinks the relationship between biology and culture."--Steven Mithen"London Review Of Books" (01/24/2008)

"A pioneering work."--Brendan Wallace"Fortean Times: The Journal Of Strange Phenomena" (07/01/2009)

A pioneering work. --Brendan Wallace"Fortean Times: The Journal Of Strange Phenomena" (07/01/2009)"

-A provocative thesis. . . . Radically rethinks the relationship between biology and culture.---Steven Mithen-London Review Of Books- (01/24/2008)

-A pioneering work.---Brendan Wallace-Fortean Times: The Journal Of Strange Phenomena- (07/01/2009)

From the Inside Flap

"This is surely a new paradigm for the study of history that will be regarded as revolutionary but which is also well justified. To my knowledge, no other book integrates the study of human history with principles of biological and cultural evolution on such an ambitious scale."--David Sloan Wilson, author of Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion and the Nature of Society

"This is one of the most exciting books I've read in years. It is so accessible, so groundbreaking, so stimulating, so important that I imagine the next generation of historians will be deeply influenced by what Smail has to say here. Simply dazzling."--Lynn Hunt, author of Inventing Human Rights
