"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."--BOOK JACKET.
