Thorny old Rose

March 4, 2010

Asking Steven Rose to review a book on evolutionary anthropology is about as likely to deliver balance as sending Richard Dawkins a theology primer ("What's in a number?" 25 February). It makes amusing, adversarial copy, but only if the reader has never heard Rose recite exactly these points, with exactly these examples, time and again over the past four decades. Were there no anthropologists available to give the book a fair hearing?
