Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sexual Conflict offers an alternative interpretation of the idea of co-operation between males and females. . . . [It] provides a convincing account of an antagonistic relationship driving evolution. It sets out to illustrate the ubiquitous nature of sexual conflict and persuasively presents the evidence for this, concluding that traditional views of peaceful co-operation are perhaps not as accurate as once believed."--Helen L. Kroening, Biologist

From the Inside Flap

"This book addresses a very topical field within evolutionary biology--the existence of conflicts of interest between mates. Indeed it provides the first substantial review of the natural history and evolutionary dynamics of sexual conflict. Cogently and articulately argued, it will no doubt become essential reading for all those interested in the subject."--Tom Tregenza, University of Exeter in Cornwall

"This book represents an important contribution in synthesizing a new field of study. The authors have for example done an outstanding job of integrating hundreds of studies, published in a broad diversity of unrelated journals, into the context of intersexual conflict. Their presentation of pertinent empirical studies provides an unprecedented wealth of valuable information."--William Rice, University of California, Santa Barbara

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Jumps around. Hits some key points but misses some of the most important. There are better books out there than this one.
