The descent of woman by Elaine Morgan( Book )

79 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 2,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Descent of Woman' is a pioneering work, the first to argue for the equal role of women in human evolution. On its first publication in 1972 it created an international debate and became a rallying-point for feminism, changing the terminology of anthropologists forever. Starting with her demolition of the Biblical myth that woman was an afterthought to the creation of man, Elaine Morgan rewrites human history and evolution. This lively, informative book sets out to solve the riddle of our origins; its answer is controversial. Elaine Morgan has made the 'Aquatic Ape Hypothesis' a plausible alternative to conventional theories of evolution and 'The Descent of Woman' first set out an understanding of who humans are and where they come from
The descent of the child : human evolution from a new perspective by Elaine Morgan( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Descent of the Child tells the story of the development of a human child from the moment of insemination to puberty. In the process, Morgan develops a stunning theory of the origins of human intelligence, arguing that our capacity for intelligence is a by-product of evolving babyhood. Uniquely among primates, Homo sapiens are born with considerable struggle, emerge wholly helpless, and continue to be dependent for a long time afterwards - only their eyes, faces, and vocal cords work. They don't know that they're not always going to be like that, Morgan posits, but, bent on survival, they try to manipulate their parents or other caregivers to do things that the babies' can't do for themselves. These early struggles, according to Morgan, provide our formative intellectual activity. It is in infancy that we really learn to think and to question. It explores not only the biological perspectives but the social ones: the change in women's role, over-population, birth control, fertility problems and the break-up of the nuclear family. The Descent of the Child should be read by parents (both new and soon-to-be) as well as anyone interested in child development or human evolution

Why do humans differ from other primates? What do those differences tell us about human evolution? Elaine Morgan gives one hypothesis that explains our anatomic anomalies--why we walk on two legs, why we are covered in fat, why we can control our rate of breathing, and more. The answers point to one conclusion: millions of years ago our ancestors were trapped in a semi-aquatic environment
