Revelatory story of how all modern non-Africans sprang from a single exodus out of Africa just 85,000 years ago

About the Author

Stephen Oppenheimer of the University of Oxford is a leading expert in the use of DNA to track migrations. His first book Eden in the East: The Drowned Continent of Southeast Asia challenged the orthodox view of the origins of Polynesians as rice farmers from Taiwan. He is also the author of The Origins of the British.


A vivid synthesis of DNA studies with archaeological, climatic, anthropological and other findings . . . The thrill of this book lies in the vast reaches of time and space that one is deftly guided through. * Emma Crichton-Miller, Sunday Telegraph *
I can put my finger on a map and say that is where my people came from. * The Economist *
Oppenheimer strongly argues for a single movement out of Africa. He tells his story with pace and authority, combining the personal and the scientific. * Times Literary Supplement *
A wonderfully readable guide for the perplexed on what modern molecular genetics may be telling us about our species' ancient origins in Africa and our many human wanderings over the earth thereafter * John Terrell, Director of Anthropology, The Field Museum, Chicago *
