Genetic diversity and human behavior by J. N Spuhler( Book )

16 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genetic differences in humans, like those between individuals of any animal or plant species and those between species, are all products of the evolutionary development of the living world. These differences, with their behavioral consequences, can only be understood in the light of evolution. Our understanding of evolution, however, has itself evolved. The Darwin-Wallace theory of evolution appeared in the nineteenth century. Since then, development of evolutionary thought has gone through several stages. The contributions in this volume describe those stages. The first four decades after Darwin were dominated by studies in comparative anatomy, embryology, systematics, zoo geography, phytogeography, and paleontology, all intended to discover and examine the evidences of evolution. But the phylogenies of the animal and plant kingdoms, that is, the history of the linkages of animal and plant organisms as they change through time, were less well documented. In particular, the phylogeny of humans is still not completely known. The period following World War Two saw acceleration of activity in fields in and bordering on behavioral genetics. Research in neuroendocrinology showed that higher cortical centers could influence and be influenced by the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, and gonads. Genetic diversity in the function of these organs had obvious consequences for social and cultural behavior. The failure of some early and long-reinforced attempts at conditioning by students of comparative animal behavior showed species-specific innate behavior could not be ignored in any theory that attempts to combine psychology and anthropology. This classic volume summarizes the development of evolutionary thinking, and describes how what we know about genetic diversity links up with research on human behavior
Law in culture and society by Laura Nader( Book )

10 editions published between 1969 and 1997 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As conflict resolution becomes increasingly important to urban and rural peoples around the globe, the value of this classic anthology of studies of process, structure, comparison, and perception of the law is acclaimed by policy makers as well as anthropologists throughout the world. The case studies include evidence from Africa, Europe, the Americas, and Oceania, and they reflect the important shift from a concern with what law is to what law does"--Publisher description

Where the wild things are now : domestication reconsidered by Rebecca Cassidy( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Domestication has often seemed a matter of the distant past, a series of distinct events involving humans and other species that took place long ago. Today, as genetic manipulation continues to break new barriers in scientific and medical research, we appear to be entering an age of biological control. Are we also writing a new chapter in the history of domestication? Where the Wild Things Are Now explores the relevance of domestication for anthropologists and scholars in related fields who are concerned with understanding ongoing change in processes affecting humans as well as other species
