A growing body of evidence has begun to reveal the flaws in the traditional assumption of female passivity after copulation has begun. The author has compiled an impressive array of research on the ability of females to shape the outcome of mating. He describes studies of many different cryptic mechanisms by which a female can accept a male for copulation but nevertheless reject him as a father.
This book could change the way you think about females ... [It] is an easy, well-organized read... Female Control makes it clear that females surely must have partial or complete control over some aspects of reproduction... [It] is destined to be an influential book, and deserves to be a citation classic. American Zoologist
