Exactly how modern humans evolved is a subject of intense debate. This book deals with the evolution of modern humans from an archaic ancestor and the differentiation of modern populations from each other. The first section of the book investigates whether modern populations arose from regional archaic hominid groups that were already different from each other, and argues that in fact, most lines of evidence support a single, recent origin of modern humans in Africa. Dr Lahr then goes on to examine ways in which this diversification could have occurred, given what we know from fossils, archaeological remains and the relationships of existing populations today. This book will be a must for all those interested in human evolution.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Lahr deserves a lot of credit for her very thorough presentation of so much evidence. Supporters of multi-regional evolution will be hard pressed to counter her main points.' Tree
' ... an important study ... likely to remain an essential reference in the debate over recent human evolution for the foreseeable future.' Alan Bilsborough, Annals of Human Biology
"...provides valuable insights and hypotheses on the possible ancient population dynamics of our species." John H. Relethford, The Quarterly Review of Biology
