Pressestimmen

"It really serves as a comprehensive review of the human biology of native Americans in the broadest sense, with topics ranging from origins to contemporary population structure to demography and epidemiology...Crawford's book is not just of value to researchers interested in native Americans as a geographic region or population genetics as a topical area; rather, it has something for everyone and is destined to be a classic work in human biology." Human Biology "Professor Crawford's book is thoroughly recommended, not only for its factual content and argument, but also for the considered opinions of the author on much of the material he has consulted in writing it. All who are working on biological questions on or about Amerindian peoples will find it essential to read."
