Through a concise & sequential analysis of both historical & scientific events, the author, a biological scientist, demonstrates that the human species has not evolved much ethically & intellectually since the time of ancient Greece, although it has progressed greatly scientifically & technologically. Man has now put himself into a situation unlike any other in history. For the first time, with his actions, he is threatening the very existence of life on the planet. In order to avoid extinction, Soli proposes that human beings free themselves of conceptual boundaries & "decide" to evolve. He calls the process "forced evolution", & he suggests ways to achieve it. After all, Homo sapiens is the only species that is aware of its own evolution, so why not take advantage of this peculiar cognizance & evolve further now, rather than wait & risk catastrophe. With its clear language the book enables the average reader to become better aware of contemporary realities. The book represents good reading for college students, as well as anybody with a minimum base of knowledge.

New York Times Bestseller A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become? Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

Explicit evidence exists for the progression of life—over a period of three-and-a-half billion years—from a strand of protein to an intelligent human, through trial, rejection and selection. The process continues and, if not hindered, a higher destiny awaits us in the distant future. Is life a property of matter? Is evolution a passive process? Or, does it have an aim or purpose? What is the role of beauty, intelligence and awareness in this evolutionary saga? Is eugenics going to hinder the natural process? Are we on our way to self-inflicted extinction? This book ponders on these questions and attempts to trace life’s quest for perfection—where beauty, vitality and wisdom meet.
This publication provides an update on the current status of gene maps in different livestock and pet/companion animal species. The findings summarized in species specific commentaries and original articles testify the rapid advances made in the field of animal genomics. Of significant interest is the fact that current investigations are providing headways for two important and exciting research fronts: targeted high-resolution mapping leading to the application of genomic information in addressing questions of economic and biological significance in animals, and the initiation of whole genome sequencing projects for some of the animal species. Like in humans and mice, this will set the stage for a new level of research and real time complex analysis of the genomes of these species. Animal Genomics signifies the beginning of a new era in this field and celebrates the achievements of the past 20 years of genomics research. It will be of special interest to researchers involved in genome analysis - both gross chromosomal as well as molecular - in various animal species, and to comparative and evolutionary geneticists.
