The murderer next door : why the mind is designed to kill by David M Buss ( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Evolutionary psychologist Buss conducted an unprecedented set of studies investigating the underlying motives and circumstances of murders, from bizarre cases of serial killers to those of the friendly next-door neighbor who one day kills his wife. Though we may like to believe that murderers are pathological misfits and hardened criminals, the vast majority of murders are committed by people who, until the day they kill, seem to be perfectly normal. He puts forth a bold new general theory of homicide, arguing that the human psyche has evolved specialized adaptations whose function is to kill. Taking readers through the surprising twists and turns of the evolutionary logic of murder, he explains exactly when each of us is most at risk, both of being murdered and of becoming a murderer.--From publisher description

Why women have sex : understanding sexual motivations from adventure to revenge (and everything in between) by Cindy M Meston ( Book )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"...Do women have sex simply to reproduce or display their affection? When University of Texas at Austin clinical psychologist Cindy M. Meston and evolutionary psychologist David M. Buss joined forces to investigate the underlying sexual motivations of women, what they found astonished them. Through the voices of real women, Meston and Buss reveal the motivations that guide women's sexual decisions and explain the deep-seated psychology and biology that often unwittingly drive women's desires, sometimes in pursuit of health or pleasure, or sometimes for darker, disturbing reasons that a woman may not fully recognize. Drawing on more than a thousand intensive interviews conducted solely for the book, as well as their pioneering research on physiological response and evolutionary emotions, Why Women Have Sex uncovers an amazingly complex and nuanced portrait of female sexuality. They delve into the use of sex as a defensive tactic against a mate's infidelity (protection), as a ploy to boost self-confidence (status), as a barter for gifts or household chores (resource acquisition), or as a cure for a migraine headache (medication)..."--Jacket
The evolution of personality and individual differences ( Book )
14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Capturing a scientific change in thinking about personality and individual differences that has been building over the past 15 years, this volume stands at an important moment in the development of psychology as a discipline. Rather than viewing individual differences as merely the raw material upon which selection operates, the contributing authors provide theories and empirical evidence which suggest that personality and individual differences are central to evolved psychological mechanisms and behavioral functioning. The book draws theoretical inspiration from life history theory, evolutionary genetics, molecular genetics, developmental psychology, personality psychology, and evolutionary psychology, while utilizing the theories of the best and the brightest international scientists working on this cutting edge paradigm shift." "In the first of three sections, the authors analyze personality and the adaptive landscape; here, the authors offer a novel conceptual framework for examing personality assessment adaptations. Because individuals in a social environment have momentous consquences for creating and solving adaptive problems, humans have evolved difference-detecting mechanisms designed to make crucial social decisions such as mate selection, friend selection, kin investment, coalition formation, and hierarchy negotiation. In the second section, the authors examine developmental and life-history theoretical perspectives to explore the origins and development of personality over the lifespan. The third section focuses on the relatively new field of evolutionary genetics and explores which of the major evolutionary forces---such as balancing selection, mutation, co-evolutionary arms races, and drift---are responsible for the origins of personality and individual differences. Existing as a seminal work in the newly emerging evolutionary psychology field, this book is a must-read for anyone invested in the development of psychology as a field."--Jacket
