The prehistory of sex : four million years of human sexual culture by Timothy Taylor ( Book )
23 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
And he links ancient sexuality with our own in a contemporary survey of artificial insemination, surrogate pregnancies, drag queens, brothels, pornography, and the spectre of racial dominance. How has human sexuality changed - and how has it remained the same - over the span of millions of years? How did the ideas of eroticism, ecstasy, immortality, and beauty become linked to sex? Taylor explores these questions and sets out to prove that our sexual behavior is and has always been a matter of choice rather than something genetically determined. He eloquently and accessibly explains how our sexual politics - issues of gender and power, control and exploitation - are not new but are deeply rooted in our prehistory. Surely one of the most illuminating and controversial books on human sexuality ever written, The Prehistory of Sex invites readers to become voyeurs into the bizarre - and so far hidden - prehistoric sexual world
The buried soul : how humans invented death by Timothy Taylor ( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Do cannibals exist? It there evidence for contemporary human sacrifice? What are vampires? The Buried Soul charts the story of the human response to death from prehistory to the present day. At some moment in human history, our ancestors invented "death." Retracing four million years, this book investigates the many ways that humans, in facing death, first understood what it was to be alive. Their confrontation with mortality survives in early accounts of sacrifices, in blindfolded bodies preserved in peat bogs, and in the elaborate burials of disabled or deformed individuals among Neanderthals and the people of the Ice Age." "Timothy Taylor has spent his life sifting through the relics of encounters with death. In The Buried Soul he gathers evidence of how the ancients saw their universe and asks how we came to have not only a sense of the afterlife but also an image of the soul."--BOOK JACKET
The artificial ape : how technology changed the course of human evolution by Timothy Taylor ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While Darwin's theory explains our common descent, scientists have grappled with the reasons why human evolution defies the principles of natural selection and why, although we dominate the planet, we have become the weakest ape. In this fascinating narrative, leading archaeologist Timothy Taylor proposes that it was our early adoption of tools, objects, and, now, technology that changed us, demonstrating how: - baby slings made out of animal fur freed up our arms up to use tools; - clothes kept us warm, reducing our need for body hair; - shelter protected us from the elements and led our bodies to become slighter and physically weaker. Drawing on the latest fossil evidence, Taylor shows how humans made choices that assumed greater control over their own evolution"--

Updating America's social contract : economic growth and opportunity in the new century by Rudolph Gerhard Penner ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Focusing on three key issues - productivity growth, income inequality, and the aging of the baby-boom generation - this volume describes a "radically moderate" agenda that captures our political moment. The authors begin by acknowledging the difficult tradeoffs required for revamping programs for the aged and poor while keeping the economy growing. They then untangle the complexities of the policy debate and propose sensible ways to move America forward into the new century."--BOOK JACKET
