Women, power, and the biology of peace [2nded.]0-9700031-5-3
Description:A future without war. Recorded history seems to prove beyond question that war is inevitable. And we cannot achieve any goal in which we do not believe. This book refutes that pessimistic conclusion and thus offers hope. It explains the biological basis of war and the achievable steps needed to foster lasting peace. The author brings a fresh, unique approach that rests on a solid biological foundation. Using fields as diverse as anthropology, primatology, social history, neurophysiology, and evolutionary biology she builds a convincing argument that a warless future is not an impossibility. This is a book to be read, savored, and shared with anyone wanting to help create a better world.
