Each chapter in this volume poses a public policy issue related to violence, describes aspects of evolutionary psychology that are relative, and then posits public policy recommendations based on this psychological model. Topics covered also include psychopathy, despotism, and suicide bombings. This volume is designed as an accessible way for policymakers outside of academia to learn about new theoretical developments. Evolutionary psychology--a relatively new theoretical model of psychology--provides valuable and exciting insights on human violence and public policy issues related to human violence, from war and terrorism to rape and criminality. To this end, each chapter in this volume poses a public policy issues related to violence, describes aspects of evolutionary psychology that are relative and then posits public policy recommendations based on this psychological model. Topics covered also include psycopathy, despotism, and suicide bombings. This volume, designed as an accessible way for policymakers outside of academia to learn about new theoretical developments, also explodes the myths about evolutionary psychology, such as the false claim that it justifies immoral behavior or focuses only on humans' ugly underbelly. While appealing to policymakers across foundations and agencies, this collection will also interest scholars and teachers focused on evolutionary psychology, public policy, criminal justice, security, public affairs, sociology, and anthropology.

Product Description

Review

"Ranging from rapists and psychopaths to judges and juries, from morality and murder to retribution and reconciliation, and from incarceration and integration to the politics of punishment, this is a book for anyone interested in or touched by violence. It is one of those rare books that can change the way you perceive and analyze. It is interdisciplinary in the best sense of the word, and offers the most up-to-date look yet at the multiple origins of violence. Nowhere is there a more integrative set of studies. The book breaks new ground, demonstrating precisely why effective peacemaking polices require competent understanding of evolutionary processes."-Owen D. Jones Arizona State University
