Summary: "Like most academic disciplines, anthropological genetics experienced a long period of development and maturation, characterized by 'hybridization' between physical (biological) anthropology, human genetics, and molecular biology. The first acknowledgement, of which I'm aware, of anthropological genetics as a distinct academic field is in an article title (Assumption and Fact in Anthropological Genetics) by Derek Roberts in 1965. Thus, we have just recently passed the 50 year anniversary of the 'emergence' of the discipline. The real foundation of the field, however, is usually pinned to Crawford and Workman's seminal volume, Method and Theory in Anthropological Genetics, published 45 years ago this spring"--Provided by publisher.
