Self-made man: human evolution from Eden to extinction?
We know prehistoric humans shaped tools and made fire. But evolutionary biologist Jonathan Kingdon thinks that our ancestors shaped us and that the human face, our racial differences, and our problematic relationship with nature are all self-made. Advance Praise for Jonathan Kingdon's Self-Made Man "One of the most original and illuminating of books on human evolution. It gives an extraordinary feel for what it must have been like." --Professor Alison Jolly Princeton University "A marvelously researched and documented book, beautifully expressed and put together--a major achievement." --Elspeth Huxley "Every page provokes a new thought." --The Economist "Self-Made Man is the work of a man of an enlarged curiosity. It is a deeply personal, challenging, and important book." --New Scientist "Kingdon has written a stimulating and absorbing contribution to the debate about human evolution, broad in range and rich in detail." --New Statesman & Society
