A fascination with this vanished race led the distinguished science writer James Shreeve on a journey through Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, searching for insights and evidence. Along the way he began to suspect that the Neandertal enigma could be understood only by a marvelous paradox. Threading his way through the violently polarized debates surrounding the fate of the Neandertals, Shreeve offers a fascinating theory for what might have allowed two equally human species to share the same landscape at the same moment of evolutionary time, and what led, ultimately, to the triumph of one and the poignant disappearance of the other

Genome war : [how Craig Venter tried to capture the code of life and save the world] by James Shreeve( Recording )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary scientific research is perched on a paradox: scientists produce research which is freely shared with all, but private companies can come in and make a killing with it. Once the human genome-- the unbelievably complex structure of human DNA-- was mapped, this milestone could enable mankind to find cures to diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's. The National Institute of Health was determined to map the genome and share the results. But when biologist Craig Venter formed a private company to map the genome first and profit from it, a race was on. Suddenly the halls of science were vibrating with nerve-jangling excitement. It was a bitter race, and a personal one, but no matter who won, the frontiers of science would forever be expanded"--Container

Among scientists, Africa is the undisputed birthplace of humanity. But anthropologists are split into two camps over other questions. How many waves of Homo sapiens migrated out of Africa? Did other highly developed hominid species--such as Homo neanderthalensis--make the same journey? And to what extent did these populations mingle and compete with each other? This program featuring prominent voices in the ongoing debate, presents differing viewpoints about the age and development of the Neandertal--and about how the vanished species figures in the story of modern humanity's rise
