Summary "Hailed as a breakthrough in the understanding of human evolution, The History and Geography of Human Genes offers the first full-scale reconstruction of where human populations originated and the paths by which they spread throughout the world. By mapping worldwide geographic distribution of genes for over 110 traits in over 1,800 primarily aboriginal populations, the authors charted migrations and devised a clock by which to date evolutionary history. Their innovative use of genetic data, when integrated with insights from geography, ecology, archaeology, physical anthropology, and linguistics, enables them to address a wide range of issues in human history that have long incited debate. This monumental work is now available in a more affordable paperback edition without the myriad illustrations and maps, but containing the full text of the authors' pathbreaking endeavor."--BOOK JACKET
