    David Reich book 27 Mar 2018

    A book is coming from David Reich: Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past (2018)

    A groundbreaking book about how technological advances in genomics and the extraction of ancient DNA have profoundly changed our understanding of human prehistory while resolving many long-standing controversies.

    Massive technological innovations now allow scientists to extract and analyze ancient DNA as never before, and it has become clear--in part from David Reich's own contributions to the field--that genomics is as important a means of understanding the human past as archeology, linguistics, and the written word. Now, in The New Science of the Human Past, Reich describes with unprecedented clarity just how the human genome provides not only all the information that a fertilized human egg needs to develop but also contains within it the history of our species. He delineates how the Genomic Revolution and ancient DNA are transforming our understanding of our own lineage as modern humans; how genomics deconstructs the idea that there are no biologically meaningful differences among human populations (though without adherence to pernicious racist hierarchies); and how DNA studies reveal the deep history of human inequality--among different populations, between the sexes, and among individuals within a population.

    You don't enjoy green covers? Seriously, french readers, you can pre-order it on amazon.fr. For me it's done.

    I would be happy with release of [80%+/-]2600+ of the 3200+ genomes to the public, in a co-operative ownership, without taking so long. Released through Anthrogenica website and legal team. No more waiting for peer reviews, books, pay walls, or permission from relatives. In house analysis by our own public group of in house citizen scientists.

    I preordered this, and got a notice from Amazon that an attempt was made to deliver my copy today. So I guess the release date was adhered to -- although I've seen a quotation or two from the book elsewhere on this forum, this week. Anyway, some more reading to do, after I pick up my copy tomorrow at the P.O.

    I pre-ordered---Amazon said it should be delivered Friday. The cover art is ugly---but easy to spot. I hope someone reviews it here.

    Very interesting reading from Google preview... I ordered it but as e-book on Google Books, it's cheaper.
