about this item

This book brings together biological and cross-cultural evidence to critically examine common preconceptions and challenge popular assumptions about human nature. It set outs to counter genetic and evolutionary myths about human variation and behavior, drawing on both biological and cultural anthropology, as well as from other disciplines including psychology, economics, and sociology. The chapters address topics such as health and disease, gender and sexuality, race, and violence and conflict. Throughout the text the author questions the scientific foundation for social inequalities and provides students with an understanding of both the constraints and possibilities inherent in the human condition.
