This book provides comprehensive information on human evolution by synthesizing and complementing data and approaches that come from such diverse fields as physical anthropology, molecular and evolutionary biology, genetics, archeology, paleontology, primatology, psychology, and philosophy .Attempts have been made to offer the most complete and ambitious keys to the interpretation of the human evolutionary process by squaring paleontological, archaeological, genetic, geographical, taphonomic, environmental and population data as far as possible, without evading methodological discussions about some concepts Such as "gender" and "species". The authors are experts in two complementary areas of knowledge: physical anthropology and molecular evolution. Throughout the book they integrate their experience to obtain a text that is a milestone in the study of human evolution, copiously illustrated and with a very complete bibliography updated.
