Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosomal Adam discusses theoretical ideas, interpretations, and paleontological evidence to narrate the origin and evolutionary story of Sapiens through the transitional stages of archaic human species involved in the evolutionary pilgrimage, from the great apes and to modern humans. Author Subir Ranjan Kundu investigates the DNA footprints of primates – great apes, archaic humans, and anatomically modern human beings – to stretch out the missing links between evolutionary milestones to define and redefine the progress of life.

European Hair, Eye, and Skin Color: Solving the Puzzle

Author: 

Frost, Peter

Credentials: 

Peter Frost holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Université Laval, in Quebec, Canada.

Europeans, especially those of northern and eastern Europe, are unique in having diverse hair and eye colors. These relatively new hair and eye colors are brighter and “purer” than the black and brown hues of other populations. They have created an appearance that we now perceive as “European,” which has emerged over a short span of evolutionary time—less than ten thousand years. Why? How? This work explores the latest science to answer these puzzling questions.

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Ken Saldhana, Editors

Credentials: 

Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)
Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

The study of literature and the environment evokes and promotes this highly original eco-critical collection and its contributions to evaluating the preservation of nature and human attachment and to situate it at a local, communitarian, or bio-regional level. Revisiting eco-literature can aid our exploration of numerous global issues and challenges through a literary rendition of the natural world in poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. Reflecting on different works will prompt the readers to intensify their search for viable and effective choices and healthy alternatives in a confusing world.
