Three Very Short Introductions have been published online this month, including a new edition:

  • Human Evolution: A Very Short Introduction (new edition), by Bernard Wood, traces the history of palaeoanthropology, with this new edition discussing how ancient DNA studies have revolutionized how we view human evolution.
  • Synaesthesia: A Very Short Introduction, by Julia Simner, describes this extraordinary condition, explaining what it is, how it manifests, what causes it, how it links to creativity, and what it can tell us about every human’s perceptions of reality.
