Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Since the 1960s, theories of human evolution have emphasized the importance of hunting in human societies. Although "man the hunter" is a popular description of our ancestry, the central importance of hunting is firmly fixed only in the archeological record of relatively recent human history. In fact, argue anthropologists Donna Hart and Robert Sussman using evidence spanning from prehistoric fossil records to today's shocking headlines, human beings get eaten. Man the Hunted argues that primates have evolved not as hunters but as the prey of any number of predators, including wild cats and dogs, hyenas, snakes, crocodiles, and even birds. Eyewitness accounts, data collected by the authors, and the published reports of naturalists establish the astonishing extent to which living monkeys, lemurs, apes, and even humans fall victim to a wide variety of predators, some of which even specialize in the consumption of primates. Additionally, the fossil record demonstrates that primates have been prey for millions of years, a fact that necessarily shaped the evolution of our earliest ancestors in body and behavior. Skillfully combining information from a number of lines of evidence, Man the Hunted casts an entirely new light on the natural history of primates and the evolution of fossil and modern humans.
