Mothers and others : the evolutionary origins of mutual understanding by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy ( Book )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Somewhere in Africa, more than a million years ago, a line of apes began to rear their young differently than their Great Ape ancestors. From this new form of care came new ways of engaging and understanding each other. How such singular human capacities evolved, and how they have kept us alive for thousands of generations, is the mystery revealed in this bold and wide-ranging new vision of human emotional evolution." "Mothers and Others finds the key in the primatologically unique length of human childhood. If the young were to survive in a world of scarce food, they needed to be cared for, not only by their mothers but also by siblings, aunts, fathers, friends - and, with any luck, grandmothers. Out of this complicated and contingent form of childrearing, Sarah Hrdy argues, came the human capacity for understanding others. Mothers and others teach us who will care, and who will not"--BOOK JACKET

Mother nature : maternal instincts and how they shape the human species by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy ( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mother Nature presents a radical new way of understanding how mothers act and why, and how this new understanding is changing the way scientists think about how evolution works." "Drawing on anthropology, history, literature, developmental psychology, and animal behavior, Sarah Hrdy examines the distinct biological and genetic elements that constitute maternal instinct. She strips away the biases implicit in conventional stereotypes of female nature to give us very different and provocative perspectives on maternal ambivalence, the links between maternity and ambition, mother love and sexual love, and she explains why age-old tensions between the sexes persist and are being played out today in efforts to control women's reproductive choices."--BOOK JACKET
Mother nature : natural selection and the female of the species by Sarah Blaffer Hrdy ( Book )
14 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and German and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author argues that evolution is controlled by the female of the species. She is more diverse, deadlier and more adaptable than the male, and the notion of maternal instinct, with its baggage of self-sacrifice, gentleness and devotion is a misapprehension
