Sex and Intelligence in Human Evolution

Book - 1999
Rate this:
Alison Jolly believes that biologists have an important story to tell about being human - not the all-too-familiar tale of selfishness, competition, and biology as destiny but rather one of cooperation and interdependence, from the first merging of molecules to the rise of a species inextricably linked by langauge, culture, and group living. This is the story that unfolds in this book, the saga of human evolution as told by a world-renowned primatologist who works among the female-dominant ringtailed lemurs of Madagascar.
