Sydney: UNSW Press, 2011. Octavo, paperback, BRAND NEW.
Evolutionary scientist Rob Brooks argues that the origins of twenty-first century problems such as obesity, consumerism and environmental devastation can be found where the ancient forces of evolution collide with modern culture and economics. Brooks explores a range of topics including falling in love, making music, our obsession with rock 'n' roll, mating, fertility, obesity, consumption, and more and is able to illustrate how evolution stands alongside economics, anthropology, psychology and political science in shaping our world.
