Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality
By examining the prehistoric origins of human sexual behavior the authors are able to expose the fallacies and weaknesses of standard theories proposed by most experts. This is a provocative, entertaining, and pioneering book. I learned a lot from it and recommend it highly. The more dubious its evidentiary basis and lack of connection with current reality, the more ardently the scientific inevitability of monogamy is maintained--even as it falls away around us. A controversial, idea-driven book that challenges everything you think you know about sex, monogamy, marriage, and family.
