' … a truly monumental compendium of everything you might have wanted to know about same-sex biology, its proximate as well as ultimate causation … a goldmine … with a treasure-trove of many hundreds of references … Aldo Poiani, in this admirable volume, has drawn together the best, most coherent summary to date of the currently available evidence.' Evolutionary Psychology
… [a] remarkable new book … a well-presented and easily navigated text. … it precisely reflects the strongest conclusion that the current literature can make: animal homosexuality can only be understood as a diverse collection of multicausal phenomena. Importantly, it is this firm commitment to an integrative and pluralistic perspective that marks out Poiani's contribution to the literature.' Animal Behaviour
This book is for readers who seek to understand the evolutionary basis of homosexuality. They will find a detailed analysis of its biological and social underpinnings. Through evolutionary theory the book links human homosexuality with similar behaviours observed in other animals, challenging the reader to think beyond the current stereotypes.
