A wonderfully readable guide for the perplexed on what modern molecular genetics may be telling us about our species' ancient origins in Africa and our many human wanderings over the earth thereafter * John Terrell, Director of Anthropology, The Field Museum, Chicago * Oppenheimer strongly argues for a single movement out of Africa. He tells his story with pace and authority, combining the personal and the scientific. * Times Literary Supplement * I can put my finger on a map and say that is where my people came from. * The Economist * A vivid synthesis of DNA studies with archaeological, climatic, anthropological and other findings . . . The thrill of this book lies in the vast reaches of time and space that one is deftly guided through. * Emma Crichton-Miller, Sunday Telegraph *
