The imperial animal by Lionel Tiger( Book )

46 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in English and held by 1,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Imperial Animal offers a compelling perspective on the controversy over humans and their biology. This now-classic study is about the social bonds that hold us together and the antisocial theories that drive us apart. The authors divulge how the evolutionary past of the species, reflected in genetic codes, determines our present and coerces our future. In the new introduction, Tiger and Fox outline their reasons for originally writing the book as well as the process they used to do their research."--Jacket
Women in the kibbutz by Lionel Tiger( Book )

21 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our data show that although some 10 to 15 per cent of the women in the kibbutz express dissatisfaction with their sociosexual roles, the overwhelming majority not only accept their situations but have sought them. They have acted against the principles of their socialization and ideology, against the wishes of the men of their communities, against the economic interest of the kibbutzim, in order to be able to devote more time and energy to private maternal activities rather than to economic and political public ones. Obviously these women have minds of their own; despite obstacles, they are trying to accomplish what women elsewhere have been periodically urged to reject by critics of traditional female roles."--The book

Tiger links current social problems, such as the increasing numbers of single mothers, abortions, working women, and men abandoning their families, to the rise of efficient methods of contraception which has "marginalized [men] in the process of reproduction."--Jacket

Female hierarchies by Lionel Tiger( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Disproportionate attention has long been paid to males in human and other social systems. The basic structures used to explain social behavior in sociological and biological work have overwhelmingly emphasized the significance and shape of male behavior and far less female behavior which is surely at least as important. Stratification, sexual selection, and natural selection of what women do among themselves and how they relate to men was explored in this volume for the first time. It is now available in a paperback edition, with a new introduction by Lionel Tiger. Do females conduct aggressive encounters with each other? Or do they have no impact on mate selection and hence on the future of the genotype? Is the main negotiation of females with males and not among themselves during this selective process? Do the usually larger size and frequently more elaborate behavioral displays of males betray the fact that the burden of selective functioning falls on males and not on females? It is improbable that the answer to these questions is "yes" and that there is little or nothing happening in all-female groups that affects not only how their communities operate but, more importantly in the long run, the genotype of their species. For those species in which gregarious social behavior is a sine qua non for successful reproduction, what are the principles of selection that operate through females? Are female hierarchies more abrasive or generous than male ones? Do they focus more on reproduction than production? What are the forms of female social grouping that either support, modify, inhibit, or stimulate sexual and hence natural selection? This work goes far beyond the slogans of our time for important responses to basic questions."--Provided by publisher
God's brain by Lionel Tiger( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a concise, lively, accessible, and witty style, the authors combine zoom-lens vignettes of religious practices with discussions of the latest research on religion's neurological effects on the brain. Among other topics, they consider religion's role in providing positive socialization, its seeming obsession with regulating sex, how religion's rules of behavior influence the law, the common biological scaffolding between nonhuman primates and humans and how this affects religion, a detailed look at brain chemistry and how it changes as a result of stress

Male & female( Visual )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is one of a series about relationships between children and adults. This title looks at a number of typical gender stereotypes and uses footage of various scenarios particularly in the home. (In schools at this time, domestic science was provided for girls and woodwork for boys, which will jar to contemporary sensibilities). Luckily, exceptions are readily found to dispell traditional gender roles. Examples of women in traditional male roles are a female taxi driver, traffic wardens and a bus driver. There is a rather cutting comment about women not being sex objects over a still image of Bo Derek
