Java man : how two geologists' dramatic discoveries changed our understanding of the evolutionary path to modern humans by Carl Celso Swisher( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors take us on a journey to the Indonesian island of Java, where Curtis and Swisher made two important discoveries: first, that human ancestors left the Cradle of Man-kind - the African continent - and migrated east almost two million years ago, much earlier than anthropologists had believed, and second, that Homo Erectus might have survived until as late as 27,000 years ago, suggesting that Homo Erectus actually coexisted with Homo sapiens and was probably not an evolutionary precursor. Their findings not only destroy the straight line of human evolution, but also call into question the inevitability of the evolution of Homo sapiens." "Eventually, politics and a lack of funding find their way into the story, providing a realistic, if unfortunate, look at the travails that accompany scientific discovery. Swisher's and Curtis's findings are often met with skepticism, and their scientific methods are called into question. But conviction and determination lead them to conclusions that not only redefine their field but raise philosophical questions about what it means to be human."--Jacket
