Abstract

This book deals with relevance of genetics, not strictly to health, although there is a relevance there, too, but to human origins and the evolution of our species, Homo sapiens. Himla is trying to answer the important question: Where do we come from? If we know where we've come from, we may better understand who we are - this assemblage of different populations who are in the process of being blended into our rainbow nation. And if we know where we came from, we might more clearly know where we are going.
