View all copies of this ISBN edition:
Evolutionary psychology occupies an important place in the drive to understand and explain human behavior. Darwinian ideas provide powerful tools to illuminate how fundamental aspects of the way humans think, feel, and interact derive from reproductive interests and an ultimate need for survival. In this updated and expanded edition of Evolution and Human Behavior, John Cartwright considers the emergence of Homo sapiens as a species and looks at contemporary issues, such as familial relationships and conflict and cooperation, in light of key theoretical principles. The book covers basic concepts including natural and sexual selection, life history theory, and the fundamentals of genetics. New material will be found in chapters on emotion, culture, incest avoidance, ethics, and cognition and reasoning. Two new chapters are devoted to the evolutionary analysis of mental disorders. Students of psychology, human biology, and physical and cultural anthropology will find Evolution and Human Behavior a comprehensive textbook of great value. The hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.

Product Description:
The book is brand new and will be dispatched from UK.
"This book offers a well-balanced approach to the subject of evolutionary approaches to human behavior. The revised edition still contains more evolutionary biology than other evolutionary psychology textbooks, which is a real strength. The new chapter on ethics is a valuable addition, as it presents philosophical arguments linked to an evolutionary approach to human behavior."--Julie Coultas, Visiting Research Fellow, Psychology, University of Sussex

"I warmly welcome this new edition. The author has expanded and updated the content and scope and I am delighted to see that he has maintained the critical approach so important in the first edition. The expansion of the old material and inclusion of newer material means that this text will form a good 'fit' to any of the numerous evolutionary courses now on offer, whether as undergraduate options, or for more advanced master's programs."--Nick Neave, Reader, Division of Psychology, Northumbria University
