Pressestimmen

"This volume summarizes previous knowledge and provides a wealth of new information about the Central African foragers known as pygmies. The pygmies show high diversity, but also represent a coherent biological branch of humans with a fascinating evolutionary history. This volume provides a state of the art summary and evaluation of important questions like: Why are the pygmies short? Could they have survived as foragers before the arrival of agriculturalists? How can they have retained cultural continuity yet lost their original languages? Why is there so much genetic diversity across different groups? This is a great book for anyone interested in hunter-gatherers and their contribution to understanding human variation."

--Kim Hill, professor, Arizona State University

"Hunter-Gatherers of the Congo Basin brings together a wide range of authorities on varied aspects of these fascinating and scientifically important peoples, with subjects ranging from genetics to music, childhood to health. Barry Hewlett, with his decades of fieldwork experience in these cultures and his rigorous and creative approach to everything in anthropology, is the ideal coordinator for this effort, and this book will be a vital resource for hunter-gatherer studies going forward."

--Melvin Konner, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor, Department of Anthropology, Program in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology, Emory University

"Hewlett (Washington State Univ.) has edited an excellent volume that brings together research on the culture and biology of African Pygmies, updating Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza's African Pygmies (CH, May'87), which focused on biology. Topics here include Pygmy cultural diversity, genetics, the role of metallurgy in the rise of farmer-forager inequalities, biology and health, the viability of foraging in the tropical rainforest, musical diversity, the diversity and fluidity of Pygmy identities, and the effects of forest conservation and global markets on Pygmy culture. . . . Summing Up: Highly recommended."
