    St. Martin's Press 2015; US$ 27.99

    In his new book The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossack, human paleoanthropologist Ian Tattersall argues that a long tradition of "human exceptionalism" in paleoanthropology has distorted the picture of human evolution.

  • The White River Badlandsby Rachel C. Benton; Jr. Dennis O. Terry; Emmett Evanoff; Hugh Gregory McDonald

    The forbidding Big Badlands in Western South Dakota contain the richest fossil beds in the world.

In the second part, the phenomenon of macroevolution... more...

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 19.95

    Australopithecines, dinosaurs, trilobites--such fossils conjure up images of lost worlds filled with vanished organisms. But in the full history of life, ancient animals, even the trilobites, form only the half-billion-year tip of a nearly four-billion-year iceberg. Andrew Knoll explores the deep history of life from its origins on a young planet... more...

  • Dinosaurs!by Scientific American Editors

    Scientific American 2014; US$ 5.99
