In readily accessible language, evolutionary biologist Dr. Judith L. Hand explores, from a biological perspective, the root causes of war and explains why war is not an inescapable facet of human nature. Drawing upon diverse fields from biology to anthropology to psychology, the author outlines a coherent strategy to end war, setting such a campaign in its historical context and explaining why a great paradigm shift in conflict resolution, from economies based on war to economies based on ending war, could occur within a relatively short period of time.
A book to be read, savored, and shared with anyone wanting to help create a better world.
Four millennia of recorded history seem to prove beyond question that war is inevitable. This book refutes that conclusion. It explains the biological basis of war and describes essential and achievable steps needed to foster lasting peace. It presents a fresh, unique approach that rests not on armchair philosophy or wishful thinking but on a solid biological foundation. Using fields as diverse as anthropology, primatology, social history, neurophysiology, and evolutionary biology, Dr. Hand builds a convincing argument for the role women must play in partnership with men to convert the dream of a peaceful future into reality.
