We are doomed to repeat history if we fail to learn from it, but how are we affected by the forces that are invisible to us' In The Invisible History of the Human Race, Christine Kenneally draws on cutting-edge research to reveal how both historical artifacts and DNA tell us where we come from and where we may be going.While some books explore our genetic inheritance and some popular television shows celebrate ancestry, this is the first book to explore how everything from DNA to emotions to names and the stories that form our lives are all part of our human legacy. Kenneally shows how trust is inherited in Africa, how silence is passed down in Tasmania, and how the history of nations is written in our DNA. From fateful ancient encounters to modern mass migrations and medical diagnoses, Kenneally explains how the forces that shaped the history of the world ultimately shape each human who inhabits it.

Unfortunately, the reader's accent was so strong as to sometimes be unintelligible. I stopped during first cd. From what I could gather, might have been interesting.

Read by Justine Eyre. Horrible diction, mispronunciation makes it impossible to understand some passages. Very bad choice by Tantor! Standard English, Please!
