By: Austin L Hughes
While there have been controversial attempts to link conclusions from sociobiological studies of animal populations to humans, few behavioural scientists or anthropologists have made serious progress. This book presents a theoretical approach to human social behaviour that is rooted in evolutionary biology and sociobiology. Hughes applies the principles of kin selection theory - which states that natural selection can favour social acts that increase the fitness of both individuals and their close relatives - to anthropological data, using mathematical and statistical techniques.
