"The important branch of evolutionary anthropology that concentrates on the co-evolution of genes and culture has been in need of its definitive textbook. Here it has found its perfect expression in one of those rare texts that is also a grand synthesis and a contribution in its own right." Robin Fox, University Professor of Social Theory, Rutgers University
"Stone and Lurquin have integrated what we know about bones, genes, and languages to produce a uniquely valuable account. By focusing on the science of human evolution, the authors avoid the stultifying debates about what is culture and does it evolve. With this volume, evolutionary anthropology becomes a coherent discipline accessible to all students and scholars in the human sciences." Marc Feldman, Stanford University
"The first textbook that uses evolutionary theory to combine the study of human culture and genetics."
