A compelling and comprehensive synthesis of what is known (and not known) about the evolutionary basis for complex behaviors in humans and other species. Low clearly and convincingly explains . . . why sex matters."--Robert Costanza, BioScience

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Essential reading for all scholars interested in the human dimensions of global change. . . . Low shows our good side and our bad side. She gives us a realistic understanding of what drives humans, and what may enable us to achieve better outcomes in the future. A must read for everyone interested in people and the planet."--Elinor Ostrom, Indiana University

"This is human sociobiology done right."--Henry S. Horn, Princeton University

"Sex differences, ecology, conservation, war, and other social dilemmas are topics of perennial interest to everyone. Here is a book that touches on them all.... The breadth of Low's expertise is remarkable."--Margo Wilson, McMaster University
