Korte samenvatting On the front cover of this book is the reconstruction of a Neanderthal woman. Doesn’t she look human? Perhaps her strikingly human appearance comes as something of a shock. It erodes our assumption of uniqueness. Yet we are descended from one of a several populations of humans that were around some 50,000 years ago. And, argues Clive Finlayson, our survival and the demise of the Neanderthals was mainly down to luck.

Set in a world of changing climates and landscapes, and shifting populations of different kind of humans, this book presents a humbling account of our rise of world dominance.
