Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Hruschka's integrative approach provides a robust, and accessible, view of the complexities of making, having, and being friends. This kind of inquiry is at the forefront of modern biocultural anthropology."—Agustin Fuentes, author of Evolution of Human Behavior

"Despite its importance to human happiness and well-being, friendship has long been a puzzle—largely a neglected one—for evolutionary scholars. Daniel Hruschka's book is a long overdue remedy to this situation. Through a deft combination of rigorous analysis and fine writing, Hruschka provides a thorough examination of friendship across the full range of human societies, past and present. His book will be an essential starting point for future work on this important topic."—Lee Cronk, author of That Complex Whole: Culture and the Evolution of Human Behavior

"With Friendship, Dan Hruschka uses evolutionary science to breathe new life into a topic that is vastly important and woefully misunderstood. Remarkable for its scope, insightfulness, and clarity, this book will change how we think about friendship for years to come."—Michael McCullough, author of Beyond Revenge: The Evolution of the Forgiveness Instinct

Format: Paperback
I use this book in a special topics course I teach at Knox College on the varied experience and expressions of love, from the artistic/literary to the cinematic. Hruschka outlines approaches to understanding friendship that give the general reader insights into not only friendship itself but also the psychological, ecological, and evolutionary roles it plays. My students especially enjoy the many examples of friendships around the world, many of which are fascinating, even startling--but ultimately reassuring in their insistence that friendship is an all-but-universal human experience.
