Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The editors set about to create a high-level summary of the field by recruiting authors to prepare critical reviews to a common standard. They did it right—the volume is balanced and strong…. The book is full of new perspectives and refreshing insights…. It ought to become a central source for anthropologists who want to bring modern science to their field.” —Henry Harpending, Science “This excellent book can serve both as a textbook and a scholarly reference. It provides the best synthesis to date of an endeavor that promises to clarify the interactions between individuals, society and population in human beings. Evolutionary Ecology and Human Behavior deserves to be read by anthropologists who are not intimidated by biology or numbers, as well as by zoologists and primatologists, who would benefit from seeing familiar and not-so-familiar models applied to different phenomena.” —Carel P. van Schaik, American Scientist
