From the Back Cover
In its first edition, Evolutionary Psychology: The Science of the Mind was the premier and original text for the burgeoning field of evolutionary psychology. David Buss, one of the foremost researchers in the field, has thoroughly revised his already enormously successful text to provide an even more comprehensive overview of this dynamic field. Using cutting-edge research and an engaging writing style, the Second Edition of Evolutionary Psychologyensures that your students will master the material presented.
Highlights of the Second Edition:
- Offers a logical progression of topics by discussing adaptive problems that humans face.
- Integrates additional material on cognition and language throughout the text.
- Includes stories, media and cultural examples and illustrations, and applications to the personal lives of students.

I admit I dismissed evolutionary psychology for a long time, arguing that we are no longer subject to darwinian evolution, but are subject to rapid cultural evolution. However, this book shows exactly why I was wrong, and how much we can learn from the sort of interesting questions that an evolutionary perspective inspires.
A nice antidote to the influence of behaviourism, which still seems to be present in sociology and feminist ideology. Just so long as we remember that not all behaviour is an adaptation.
Omly drawback may be the price fro some of us poverty stricken students
