The evolution of man by David R Pilbeam( Book )

16 editions published between 1970 and 1977 in 3 languages and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The belief that man and his fellow primates are descended from a common stock is no longer seriously disputed: the principal evolutionary processes are now well established and the primate fossil evidence is impressive. But the answers to many fascinating questions remain uncertain. Precisely how did the tortuous operation of natural selection come to endow man with his distinctive features -- his up-right posture, his remarkable co-ordination of eye and hand, his enlarged brain and his patterns of social behaviour? What conditions first prompted him to make tools and develop language? In approaching such questions as these, Dr. Pilbeam conducts the reader along a tantalizing trail of human and man-like relics extending backwards in time for a full fifteen million years."--Back cover
Chimpanzees and human evolution by Martin N Muller( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although chimpanzees and other primates are frequently used as models to reconstruct the behavior of extinct human ancestors, this is rarely done in a consistent or methodologically rigorous fashion. This volume brings together leading scholars to explore how knowledge about chimpanzees can be used to understand both what is unique about our own species, and how these traits evolved. The first part of the book makes the case that the last common ancestor of chimpanzees and humans was chimpanzee-like. This inference is based not on an assumption that chimpanzees are a model species, but on morphological, developmental, and genetic data, together with evidence from the hominin fossil record. The second part of the book provides the first detailed record of the similarities and differences between humans and chimpanzees, including those in social system, mating system, diet, social behavior, hunting, tool use, culture, cognition, and communication.--
