Current Argument on Early Man: Report from a Nobel Symposium is a collection of papers that sheds in light into the evolutionary history of humans. The book reviews the state of knowledge regarding the human origins and pre-history. The coverage of the text includes articles that cover archeological and biological evidence that can lead to the origins of human. This topic includes evidence using viral gene sequences suggesting an Asian origin of human; a review of archeological evidence for early hominid land-use and ecological relations; and the excavation of the cave at Chou-kou-tienin 1927 and 1928. The book will be of great use to anthropologists, paleontologists, archeologists, and evolutionary biologists.
