Human Evolution is a comprehensive, balanced, and contemporary introduction to evolutionary theory, genetic methods, and predictive models, and their applications to burning questions about the evolution of our species. Unlike other human evolution texts, Hawks provides a balanced discussion of the latest debates within human evolution, clarifying for students the various perspectives. These debates include multiregionalism vs. the African replacement model (monogenesis), language origins, sexual selection and behavioral evolution, the transition to modern humans, and the use of predictive evolutionary models. Hawks also offers superior coverage of genetics, anatomy and the fossil record, and archaeology
