I recommend ORIGINS RECONSIDERED: IN SEARCH OF WHAT MAKES US HUMAN by
Richard Leakey and Roger Lewin. The hard back version is priced at $25 U.S.
and $29.50 Canada. This book was published in 1992 by Doubleday. I believe
I have seen a soft cover version of this book. If so the price is most
likely under $15 U.S. The ISBN is 0-385-41264-9. I have read that some
publishers give educators a discount for bulk orders, if appropriate, you
may want to look into that by writing to:
Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc.
666 Fifth Avenue
New York, New York 10103
Also, you can go to your local book store and ask them to order a quantity;
leaving you out of the loop and not responsible for purchasing the extra
copies if any. I have done this at an independent book store.
