Perspectives on Human Evolution, volumes 1 and 2
By Washburn, Sherwood L., Jay, Phyllis and Dolhinow, Phyllis (editors)
Pp. xiii, 287; xiv, 491; numerous text-figures (black-and-white photos, line-drawings, halftones, graphs). Original printed yellow or blue printed wrappers, each lettered in white on the spine and front cover, 8vo. There is no hardcover edition of this work – only the softcover edition was issued. This series, developed by S. L. Washburn, is a publication of the Society for the Study of Human Evolution, Berkeley, California. The series was created to bring together the variety of evidence which helps us understand the process that has created mankind. It presents topical articles on human evolution concerning the fossil record, stone tools and biosocial problems such as development of language – all of these are seen from the “Berkeley Perspective” as espoused by Washburn. Many of Washburn’s students and close colleagues were asked to publish in this series. Both volumes contain papers by Vincent Sarich on the biomolecular evidence for hominid origins discovered at U. C. Berkeley. There are a total 29 chapters by noted authorities in these two volumes. No ownership marks.
