Rezensionen

(TheQuarterly Review of Biology, 1 March 2011)
"But few current volumes offer the flexibility inherent in thesheer comprehensiveness of The Emergence of Humans. In thisremarkably compact volume, Ash and Robinson, both of whom teach atthe U.K.'s Open University, cover (in varying depth) virtuallyeverything that a focused course in this subject might want toaddress, while avoiding related areas of anthropology."

"The Emergence of Humans is an accessible, informativeintroduction to the scientific study of human evolution. . .written by two authors with a wealth of teaching experience TheEmergence of Humans will prove invaluable to students in thebiological and natural sciences needing a clear, balancedintroduction to the study of human evolution. Recommendation:would make a good undergraduate level textbook." (The BirdbookerReport, 16 November 2010) "
