Product Description

Review

"This is a lucid, beautifully-written, informative and provocative book. It presents the modern science of choice and decision persuasively." - Thomas Schelling, University of Maryland; "War and Human Nature holds the potential to open an entirely new area of insight into war. It will provide a new way of thinking about the collapse of armies, the choices and behaviors of tyrants, and the way in which differing elite selection mechanisms may wittingly or otherwise lead to individuals with differeing cognitive profiles ending up in office. The use of the cognitive science literature is novel and provides insight into an area of research social scientists typically ignore." - Allan C. Stam, Dartmouth College"

"A thought-provoking, timely synthesis of political decision-making in light of recent progress in neurobiology, psychology and behavioral biology. Rosen explores an intriguing new formulation of biologically-motivated political science."--Michael L. Platt, Duke University

The best integration of political science and evolutionary biology that I have read. 21 Jun. 2013
By Jay Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
In WAR AND HUMAN NATURE, Rosen does the best job of integrating political science and evolutionary biology that I have read. He is dragging social science out of the dark ages. It's good. Read it!
