Migration and Colonization in Human Microevolution. Alan Fix. Cambridge University Press, New York, 1999. 254 pp. $69.95. ISBN 0-521-59206-2.

Combining perspectives from biological and social scientists, Fix examines how migration has affected the patterns of genetic variation in human populations. His synthesis uses a diverse set of empirical studies and computer simulations to test and improve models developed by population geneticists.
