It is not at all clear to me why any-one would think that human evolution stopped with the emergence of anatomically modern forms some 70 ka ago, but this book should dispel any such doubts. Most interesting of all is the final section on evolution of exceptional intelligence in specific non-intermarrying religious groups. One almost gets the impression that this was the reason for writing the book, the rest being more mundane introduction to the subject.
