Evolutionary psychology, despite its current popularity, fares no better, for it extrapolates modern human behavior directly from biological evolution, ignoring the effect of 10,000 intervening years of cultural evolution. In Eve's Seed, McElvaine bridges the gap between evolutionary biology and history to create a new approach he terms biohistory."--Jacket." ;
