Dawn over the Kalahari : how humans became human
Av Lasse Berg

Lasse Berg takes us to the cutting edge of research by the worlds leading evolutionary scientists. He combines breathtaking revelations with his own lifelong experience of living in different parts of the globe, particularly in Africa.
The astonishing picture that emerges from this highly informative and accessible blend of our new knowledge about human nature is that we are ALL Africans. Biologically there are no human races. The encouraging message of this book is that humanity was made for peaceful co-operation by six million years of evolution in Africa.
