About this book

Based on studies of macaques in the field and at the California Primate Research Center, this book provides a review of the evolution of sexual reproduction and of males and females as distinct forms, a detailed history of the female life cycle, chapters on sexuality, reproduction and sexual selection theory. Small then goes on to discuss human and nonhuman female primate behaviour in detail.
`Filled with fascinating and compelling ideas about human behavior, Female Choices is superbly researched, very readable, and a splendid addition to any library, Diane Ackerman.
