5.0 out of 5 stars A summarisation of the topical paleoanthropological finds., March 3 2000
This review is from: Guide to Fossil Man (Hardcover)
Since its first appearence in 1965,"Guide to Fossil Man" was considerably updated trough subsequent editions,so it is quite usable today as handy refference to main paleoanthropological finds,before more advanced atlases,encyclopedias,and other literature dealing with Human evolutionary anatomy,replace it for upper division courses.It containts selected osteological finds,presented in the form of files containing history of finding the specimen,faunal and sedimental contexts,estimated chronological framework,as well as detailed discussion on fossil find-descriptive,comparative,with some anthropometric data plus illustrative material.But there are also separate discusions on particular issues,with exposure of various hypothesis,and with particular refference to Neanderthal enigma Per Se,as well as their relation with origin of modern Humans.After every file,Author provided solid bibliography.This book is best scrutinisation of key finds,suitable for begginers in paleonthropology and archaeologist whose focus of interest is Peopling of Paleolithic.
