Eve's seed : biology, the sexes, and the course of history by Robert S McElvaine( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this provocative reinterpretation of the human experience, Robert S. McElvaine contends that centuries of historical orthodoxy have told only half the human story, because it has ignored our evolutionary heritage and what is commonly dismissed as "prehistory." Evolutionary psychology, despite its current popularity, fares no better, for it extrapolates modern human behavior directly from biological evolution, ignoring the effect of 10,000 intervening years of cultural evolution. In Eve's Seed, McElvaine bridges the gap between evolutionary biology and history to create a new approach he terms biohistory."--Jacket

Grand theft Jesus : the hijacking of religion in America by Robert S McElvaine( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We're mad as Heaven, and we're not going to take it anymore!" declares historian Robert McElvaine in this passionate and often hilarious rallying cry for sincere Jesus followers. He lets us know that the extreme right wing won't be allowed to speak for all Christians any longer. This polemic blends outrage and humor to expose the televangelists and the leaders of megachurches as the people Jesus warned us about. The religion McElvaine calls ChristianityLite promises, "Be saved without sacrifice or good works!" Run by a crew of politicians, megachurch preachers, televangelists, hypocrites, and snake-oil salesmen, it has hijacked true Christianity and distorted it into something Jesus wouldn't recognize, a religion that advocates war and intolerance, values money above charity, preaches hatred instead of brotherhood, and promises "true" believers the keys to the gates of the kingdom of God--and to the bank.--From publisher description
