From the Inside Flap
"This impressively comprehensive volume is a long-awaited and worthy successor to the now outdated 1978 classic, Evolution of African Mammals. A must-have reference work for everyone interested in mammalian evolution."David Pilbeam, Harvard University and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology
"Cenozoic Mammals of Africa does not disappoint: here is a magisterial volume of nearly 1,000 pages of densely packed information authored by many of the leading scholars of our time. The book provides excellent summaries of the geological, geographic, climatic, ecological and chronological settings in which the mammals of Africa have evolved. Anyone with an interest in the origins of humans and other mammals, in their past settings and in the natural communities of which they were part, will be thrilled to read and refer to this superb collaborative effort."Jonathan Kingdon, co-editor of Mammals of Africa
"Werdelin and Sanders is now the essential source book for research on African fossil mammals. Its connection to human evolution gives the book a particular gleam; its in-depth coverage of all fossil mammals makes the book relevant to every interest in biodiversity, paleoecology, and tests of the evolutionary process."Dr. Richard Potts, Director, Human Origins Program, Smithsonian Institution
"A compendious, scholarly and insightful synthesis that collates the most up-to-date information on Africa's Cenozoic mammals. This authoritative team of authors reveals the fascination of Africa's extinct mammal fauna and provides compelling evidence of the adage that the present (including our own) can only be understood through knowledge of the past."David W. Macdonald, editor of The Encyclopaedia of Mammals
