Title: The Cradle of Language
Edited By: Rudolf P. Botha
Christopher Knight
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199545865
Description:

This book is the first to focus on the African origins of human language.
It explores the origins of language and culture 250,000-150,000 years ago
when modern humans evolved in Africa. Scholars from around the world
address the fossil, genetic, and archaeological evidence and critically
examine the ways it has been interpreted. The book also considers parallel
developments among Europe's Neanderthals and the contrasting outcomes for
the two species. Following an extensive introduction contextualizing and
linking the book's topics and approaches, fifteen chapters bring together
many of the most significant recent findings and developments in modern
human origins research. The fields represented by the authors include
genetics, biology, behavioural ecology, linguistics, archaeology, cognitive
science, and anthropology.
