Abstract

As a senior editor at Nature, Henry Gee has published a number of articles which question the place of Homo sapiens as rightful inheritors of the Earth. In The Accidental Species, he develops this question more fully. Detailed and thought-provoking examples from palaeontology are well-supported by others from diverse fields like cell biology and linguistics. Katarina Gray-Sharp recommends the book to any social scientist (and children of) with even a passing interest in evolution.
