The third edition of Evolutionary Psychology continues to be the premier text for the burgeoning field of evolutionary psychology, and this major update contains nearly 400 new references.


This textbook discusses the roots and innovations of the new science of evolutionary psychology, and how it helps us understand such behavioral problems and challenges as survival, sex and mating, parenting and kinship, and group living. It discusses long-term mating strategies of women and men, as well as short-term sexual strategies; aggression and warfare; conflict between the sexes; and status, prestige, and social dominance.
