'One of the key feminist texts' Guardian The Descent of Woman is a pioneering work, the first to argue for the equal role of women in human evolution. On its first publication in 1972 it sparked an international debate and became a rallying-point for feminism, changing the terminology of anthropologists forever. Starting with her demolition of the Biblical myth that woman was an afterthought to the creation of man, Elaine Morgan rewrites human history and evolution.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the key feminist texts * Guardian *
She is more scientific than Genesis, more up to date than Darwin, more fun than Ardrey, and she writes better than Desmond Morris. * Sunday Telegraph *
A dizzying Darwinian insight into the sheer happenstance of man's genesis. * Guardian *
