9780199738403: The Oxford Handbook of Evolutionary Perspectives on Violence, Homicide, and War (Oxford Library of Psychology)

The Oxford Handbook of Evolutionary Perspectives on Violence, Homicide, and War synthesizes the theoretical and empirical work of leading scholars in the evolutionary sciences to produce the first extensive and authoritative review of this literature. The handbook includes chapters on intimate partner violence, child abuse, sibling violence, suicide, adolescent bullying, sexual abuse, religious terrorism, animal cruelty, and several chapters addressing human and non-human intergroup aggression and war. This breadth of coverage is unique, and ensures that the handbook provides essential reading for students and researchers in the fields of psychology, anthropology, criminology, sociology, ethology, biology, and behavioral ecology.

About the Author:


Todd K. Shackelford, Ph.D., is Professor and Chair of Psychology at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. Much of his research addresses sexual conflict in humans, including violence, rape, and homicide.

Viviana A. Weekes-Shackelford, Ph.D., is Special Lecturer in Psychology at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. Her research focuses on conflict in parent-child and other familial relationships.

Review:


"The authors provide theoretical paradigms to explain various forms of violence in an easy-to-read book that will appeal to a wide audience." -- DOODY'S


"In The Oxford Handbook of Evolutionary Perspectives on Violence, Homicide, and
War, editors Todd Shackelford and Viviana Weekes-Shackelford have delivered an
extremely strong volume, rich in content and ripe for these times--one is duly impressed by the magnitude of this accomplishment. The editors have recruited many of the leading lights of the field to prepare definitive reviews in their areas of special interest. This is a book that will be read profitably and with pleasure by several large cohorts of scholars and enthusiasts. It is not written just for those who are drawn to evolutionary psychology. Students and authorities in psychology, anthropology, criminology, political science, and peace and conflict studies will find a veritable cornucopia of empirical information." --PsycCRITIQUES


"In sum, The Oxford Handbook of Evolutionary Perspectives on Violence, Homicide, and War represents a top-rate book that should grace the bookshelf of any academician interested in the evolutionary underpinnings to violence. Without a doubt, the chapters will incite debate, foster future research, and perhaps most importantly will inspire future students to pursue evolutionary perspectives in their own areas of interest." -- Evolutionary Psychology


"...We get a huge and comprehensive survey across the whole field of violence: between relatives, between fellow group members and, in times of conflict and war, between different societies or cultures. There is material from every perspective, from those who are totally sold on the approach to those who are still very wary about whether evolutionary studies can really pay dividends. One of the things I liked actually was the modesty of many of the contributors, confident that they had things of real value to say and report, but very much aware that the real tasks lie ahead not behind.There is material here for much discussion and the pity would be if people thought the book is of value only to a narrow group working on specific issues to do with violence. Particularly striking is the extent that so much material bears on male-female differences." -- Michael Ruse, Philosophy, Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida,
