"In this volume, Burgess and MacDonald have brought together a distinguished group of psychologists and anthropologists to investigate how-given our evolutionary heritage, genetic make-up and salient environment-behavior, cognition, and emotion unfold from the human organism. They make clear that both evolutionary functional and proximate behavioral perspectives are essential to understanding the human mind and its products. Many of these essays should be required reading for sociobiologists, evolutionary psychologists, and evolutionary anthropologists and their ilk."
"It's clear that evolutionary biology has a tremendous amount to offer when it comes to our understanding of human development, and yet, many experts in developmental psychology have remained impervious to these insights. At last, this may change: Burgess and MacDonald have compiled a rich array of theory and data, much of it contributed by the leading lights of evolutionary psychology (or, if you prefer, sociobiology). A very valuable collection and one that might help define a new and important field."
"I feel that evolutionary psychology is a growing force, and it will come to dominate thinking in psychology. . . such a book now is timely."
"The contributors are, as a group, a most impressive lot. . . . On the whole, there appears to be enough new material in the proposed book to cause an evolutionary developmental psychologist to adopt it as a supplementary book of readings. Too, I suspect that individuals such as myself, who are not developmental psychologists, would be inclined to buy it and read it."
