Review of The Evolution of Human Behavior by K.J. Warden

Ellsworth Faris

This book has seven chapters of untechnical discussion on organic evolution, the prehistoric archaeology of Europe, the races of men, and the possible future of human evolution. There are incidental references to social origins such as language and religion. The author is not an anthropologist and confines himself in the main to the older books. The discussion will not interest specialists, although such a summary of familiar facts might prove informing to the general reader who is interested in evolution and race. The chief criticism is that human behavior is hardly discussed at all. It makes a more attractive title, and the reader looks for something on the subject, but though the author may have intended to treat it, his book was finished before he got to it.
