    While modern science has contested for quite some time that humanity's 'great leap forward' of the last 50,000 years marked the endo of civilization, there are still a few pieces of that theory that just don't add up. For instance blue eyes, lactose tolerance, resistance to malaria...all of these developments have taken hold in the last 10,000 years. So the question, is more or less, still a very open one. In 'The 10,000 Year Explosion' leading scholars Gregory Cochran and Henry Harpending offer readers a fascinating exploration of the role of human civilization as a catalyst for evolution. The result is an astounding new chapter in the human saga.

    Scientists have long believed that a ?great leap forward” some 40,000 to 50,000 years ago in Europe marked the end of significant biological evolution in humans. But top scholars Gregory Cochran and Henry Harpending argue otherwise: not only has the human species undergone a storm of genetic change after civilization arose, human evolution has in fact accelerated, and these ongoing changes have played a pivotal role in history.

  • 99% Ape: How Evolution Adds Up

     In his lifetime, Charles Darwin was roundly mocked for suggesting that humans were descended from apes, and even in our own day, the teaching of evolution remains controversial. But in the century and a half since the publication of On the Origin of Species, our increasingly sophisticated understanding of genetics has borne out Darwin's theory: humans share 99% of their genes with chimps (and many even with grapes!).            99% Ape offers an accessible, straightforward introduction to evolution, beginning with Darwin's discoveries and continuing through the latest genetic discoveries. Edited by Jonathan Silvertown, the volume brings together experts in a variety of fields pertinent to evolution, from paleobiology to planetary science, comparative anatomy to zoology, and even—for a discussion of legal battles surrounding the teaching of evolution—law. Interwoven with these varied accounts of evolution and its impact are vignettes from Darwin's life that illustrate the continuity of thought that links Darwin's work to today's cutting-edge research.            Beautifully illustrated, 99% Ape is a perfect companion to the upcoming celebration of Darwin's bicentennial and a bracing reminder of the important role evolution still has to play in our understanding of our origins—and our possible futures.
