Genes, Culture, and Human Evolution by Linda Stone
Book DescriptionGenes, Culture, and Human Evolution: A Synthesisis a textbook on human evolution that offers students a unique combination of cultural anthropology and genetics. * Written by two geneticists---including a world-renowned scientist and founder of the Human Genome Diversity Project---and a socio-cultural anthropologist. * Based on recent findings in genetics and anthropology that indicate the analysis of human culture and evolution demands an integration of these fields of study. * Focuses on evolution---or, rather, co-evolution---viewed from the standpoint of genes and culture, and their inescapable interactions. * Unifies cultural and genetic concepts rather than rehashing nonempirical sociobiological musings. * Demonstrates that empirical genetic evidence, based on modern DNA analysis and population studies, provides an excellent foundation for understanding human cultural diversity.
