Product description

Review

A wonderfully illuminating exposition of how advances in reading ancient DNA have upended our ideas about past population movements and human interaction. (Paul Collier, Books of the Year 2018, The Times Literary Supplement)

Hugely impressive. (Robin McKie, Books of the Year 2018: Science, The Observer)

Reich's book isn't just a collection of stories about the histories of human populations. It is a fascinating case study of scientific revolution... Reich also has interesting things to say about the way his discipline has over the years been caught up in politics. (Steven Mithen, London Review of Books)

Who We Are and How We Got Here is both comprehensive and exceptionally well-written ... [a] vast global scope as well as its myriad of fascinating details. (Richard Milner, Minerva)

A hugely important book and essential reading. (Edward Biddulph, Current Archaeology)

I learned a good deal from this book, and I encourage others to do the same. (Bernard Wood, Current Biology)

It is an incredibly exciting overview of a revolution in the making. (Leon Vlieger, The Inquisitive Biologist)

Reich's intellectual curiosity and passion for research shine through every page of his book... This book is required reading for everyone interested in an up-to-date account of the spellbinding story of human prehistory. (Debbie Kennett, Who Do You Think You Are?)

Professor David Reich of Harvard Medical School... is not a disinterested observer of a fast-developing field; he is a participant and, in fact, a driver, of the ancient DNA revolution and it is his and his team's research that has accomplished much of the reshaping of human history. So this book has the feel of a first-hand account from the trenches that also carries with it a high-level perspective of what is going on where and why. (Tony Joseph, The Hindu)

The conclusions of this book are reassuringly complex and nuanced. But they are no less approachable, no less captivating for that. Indeed, the result is to bring prehistory almost disarmingly close. He brings whole societies from that past vividly to life. (Harry de Quetteville, The Daily Telegraph)
