Summary

Veteran science writer Carl Zimmer guides us on a journey from the savannas of Africa to modern-day labs for biomechanical analysis and biomolecular genetics, revealing how anthropologists are furiously rewriting the human family tree. These discoveries have spawned a host of new questions: Should chimpanzees be included as a human species? Was it the physical difficulty of human childbirth that encouraged the development of social groups in early human species? Did humans and Neanderthals interbreed? Why did humans win out in the end? Smithsonian Intimate Guide to Human Origins ultimately comes full circle and sheds provocative new light on one of the most important questions of all: What makes us human?
