Origins: What New Discoveries Reveal About the Emergence of Our Species and its Possible Future
From: The Leakey Foundation:
"Today many of Louis Leakey's theories are accepted as scientific fact, but this was not always the case. Along with his wife Mary, Leakey pioneered the survey and excavation of hominid and archeological sites in Eastern Africa, believing Africa to be the continent where humans first emerged. He conceived the first long-term behavior studies of wild apes that have shed light on human social relations. And he established the Pan African Congress as the first international body of scholars dedicated to human prehistory."
