Comprehensive introductory text to human behaviour and psychology from an evolutionary perspective.
`If this book has a single message, it is long live pluralism.' Henry Plotkin
'This is more than a much needed comprehensive introductory text to the area. It is an antidote to the erroneous view that evolutionary approaches to human psychology and action is some monolithic view focussed solely upon the concept of adaptation and reproductive success. As this book shows, it is many things, including the study of the causal powers and origins of human culture. If this book has a single message, it is long live pluralism.' - Henry Plotkin, Professor of Psychobiology, University College London. 'A monumental work. Buy it for the bibliography list. Read it for the pleasure of seeing a powerful new field making the transition to maturity.' - Randolph Nesse, M.D., Director, Evolution and Human Adaptation Program, University of Michigan and coauthor (with George Williams) of Why We Get Sick 'This is an impressive review of the literature on the evolution of human behaviour, including human evolutionary ecology and psychology. It will be a useful teaching resource, and there is nothing quite like it currently available.' - Ruth Mace, University College London 'This well-written and balanced textbook presents the complexity of the debate over evolutionary psychology. A valuable addition to the teaching resources for the growing area of evolutionary psychology, it provides the foundational information that allows students to confront the primary source material.' - Steven Scher, Eastern Illinois University
