Reviews

One of those books that stops you dead in your tracks and makes you say out loud - why didn't I know that before? So easy to read. So logically argued. So satisfyingly sensible and thought-provoking. Read it, think about it, and then read it again. An absolute revelation. * Professor Sue Black, bestselling author of All That Remains *
A valuable contribution to our understanding of who we are and how we got here. * Tim Marshall, bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography *
A Short History of Humanity is an eloquent and timely reminder that viruses and other pathogens of infectious disease are merely fellow-travellers in an epic journey that began when the first human migrants left Africa around 200,000 years ago. The solution to pandemics is not to close borders in the hope of keeping viruses out but to recognise that we are a fundamentally peripatetic species united in our shared genetic inheritance and common humanity. * Mark Honigsbaum, author of A Pandemic Century *
A highly readable, personal guide to the twists and turns in unravelling ancient DNA: Krause and Trappe expertly unravel the story of ancient DNA to reveal how the new field of archaeogenetics has utterly transformed understanding of our deep past. * Rebecca Wragg Sykes, author of Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death, and Art *
Extremely enriching. Rarely, have I been able to learn so much and get such radically new insights over 250 pages * Suddeutsche Zeitung *
