`One of the most profound paradoxes in human nature is how some animals, including humans, could have become so cooperative through a harsh evolutionary process known as `red in tooth and claw'. Lee Dugatkin discusses the latest thinking, which is getting richer by the day, in a manner that everyone will understand.' Fans de Waal, author of Good Natured

[Dugatkin] offers a new way of thinking about human society, as well as a host of amazing stories about the trials and motivations of our animal relatives.--Lynn Hunt "New Scientist "
