Customer Review

on 4 November 2007
Palmer gives a detailed if necessarily sketchy description of the history of human archeology and describes most of the theories of human evolution adequately. Unfortuantely, he omits any discussion of disease as the bottleneck in human evolution. He therefore cannot make sense of the spread of neanderthals and cro magnons and possible other early humans across Euope and Asia before the bottleneck. It was the near extinction of humans in Africa, followed by the survivors carrying of a disease, probably the common cold, out of Africa (a disease that was fatal to virtually all but the survivors), that created the genetically homogenious population of present humans.
