Summary:
Altruism in Humans takes a hard-science look at the possibility that humans have the capacity to care for others for their sakes rather than simply for their own. This discussion is based not on armchair speculation or after-the-fact interviews, but on an extensive series of theory-testing laboratory experiments conducted over the past 35 years. -- Book Jacket.
