Description

The Origins of Native Americans: Evidence from Anthropological Genetics is written by Michael H. Crawford, Professor of Anthropology and Genetics at the University of Kansas. This is the standard anthropological approach to the study of the origins of Indigenous Peoples of North America. This book is a synthesis of the genetic, archaeological, and demographic evidence concerning the Native peoples of the Americas, using case studies from contemporary Amerindian and Siberian Indigenous peoples to unravel the questions. It culminates in an examination of the devastating collision between European and Native American cultures following contact, and the legacy of increased incidence of chronic diseases that still accompanies the acculturation of Native peoples today.
