Innehållsbeskrivning
"Harvard human evolutionary biologist Carole Hooven reveals the most cutting-edge research about testosterone to illuminate the real biology of masculinity and makes the case that understanding this science is critical for social progress"--
Since antiquity humans have understood that typically masculine behavior depends on testicles, the main source of testosterone in males. Which sex has the highest rates of physical violence, hunger for status, and desire for a high number of sex partners? Just follow the testosterone. Research on creatures from chimpanzees to spiny lizards shows how high testosterone helps males out-reproduce their competitors. Hooven shows that testosterone works in concert with genes and culture to produce a vast variety of male and female behavior. The fact that many sex differences are grounded in biology provides no support for restrictive gender norms or patriarchal values. In understanding testosterone, we better understand ourselves and one another-- and how we might build a fairer, safer society. -- adapted from jacket.
