Editorial Reviews


“Recommended for graduate students and professionals in anthropology and archaeology.”–Choice

“Archaeology, Language, and History should be read by all serious students of human evolution and genetic diversity--areas revolutionized by an infusion of molecular genetics....This book makes it clear that human population geneticists have much to learn from linguistics and anthropologists and need to reevaluate their assumptions about the role of language in human history and population structure. Given that the Human Genome Project now embraces studies of human genetic variation as one of its top priorities, this book is both timely and important--so read and learn!”–Alan R. Templeton Professor of Biology & Genetics Washington University, St. Louis, MO

“This is a remarkable book. Through compelling illustrations the collected chapters dispel any lingering expectations that language and culture and biology might co-vary in simple, predictable fashion. The authors develop subtle and nuanced approaches to understanding human interactions, past and present, in which the very nature of community is at issue.”–Janet Dixon Keller Professor of Anthropology University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Book Description

More About the Author

Friendship is not just a warm, fuzzy sense of spiritual connection with other human beings. Friendships matter. And our talent at making new friends is one of our remarkable traits as a species. I did not write *A Talent for Friendship*, my latest book, as a textbook covering all relevant material in the style, say, of the Annual Reviews of psychology, anthropology, neuroscience, and the like. Knowing that we live in an age when science is often delivered in short TED talks rather than as "one long argument" (Darwin's description of *On The Origin of Species*), I've written this book as an integrated series of short thematic chapters that honor the general dictum "start with what the reader knows" so that the she or he can relate personally to the content as much as possible. Knowing also that many readers check to see what is the length of a chapter before deciding to tackle it, I deliberately kept chapter length short (generally speaking, 8-15 manuscript pages). I also tried to weave together everyday observations and my own research experiences into the scientific content discussed to encourage readers to see that science can be a part of how all of us see the world around us. Science does not have to be done only in exotic foreign locales or in high-tech laboratories.
