Fine cloth copy in a near-fine, very slightly edge-nicked and dust-dulled dw, now mylar-sleeved. Remains particularly and surprisingly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong. Previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown.; 251 pages; Physical desc.: xii, 251 p. ; 24 cm. Subjects: Molecular genetics - Evolution (Biology). Genes - Popular works. Biology - history - Biological Evolution. Summary: Commissioned by the BBC to deliver the Reith Lectures in 1991, Steve Jones has used them as the basis for this book which argues that the evolution of our genes may be compared to the evolution of language. Genetics, argues the author, can help us unravel the mechanisms and fortunes of human evolutions in far more detail and with much greater confidence than was possible a few years ago.
