Présentation de l'éditeur :

Go beyond the headlines and the hype to get the newest findings in the burgeoning field of gender studies. Drawing on disciplines that include evolutionary science, anthropology, animal behavior, neuroscience, psychology, and endocrinology, Deborah Blum explores matters ranging from the link between immunology and sex to male/female gossip styles. The results are intriguing, startling, and often very amusing. For instance, did you know that. . .
? Male testosterone levels drop in happy marriages; scientists speculate that women may use monogamy to control male behavior
? Young female children who are in day-care are apt to be more secure than those kept at home; young male children less so
? Anthropologists classify Western societies as "mildly polygamous" The Los Angeles Times has called Sex on the Brain "superbly crafted science writing, graced by unusual compassion, wit, and intelligence, that forms an important addition to the literature of gender studies."

Biographie de l'auteur :

Pulitzer Prize winner Deborah Blum is a professor of science journalism at the University of Wisconsin. She worked as a newspaper science writer for twenty years, winning the Pulitzer in 1992 for her writing about primate research, which she turned into a book, The Monkey Wars (Oxford, 1994). Her other books include Sex on the Brain (Viking, 1997) and Love at Goon Park (Perseus, 2002). She has written about scientific research for The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Discover, Health, Psychology Today, and Mother Jones. She is a past president of the National Association of Science Writers and now serves on an advisory board to the World Federation of Science Journalists and the National Academy of Sciences.

Description du livre Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 1998. Paperback. Etat : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Sex on the Brain presents a convincing case that we re products of both our biology and our culture - and that the two perform an intricate dance whose steps are, to some extent, ones we can choose. Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer Deborah Blum has synthesized research so new - from the fields of evolutionary biology, anthropology, animal behavior (especially primatology), neuroscience, psychology, and other disciplines - that scientists are just beginning to publish it. She provides the best picture yet of the biological underpinnings of the differences between the sexes. Examples of what she has discovered include: Men s testosterone levels drop when men are in happy marriages, so dramatically that some scientists speculate that women may use monogamy to control male behavior. On the other hand, new studies show that women in high-stress professions display a rise in testosterone levels (and possibly competitive behaviors). A study done with sweaty T-shirts suggests that a man s scent carries information about his immune system. And women find that scent sexiest when the male immune system is different from their own - which just happens to make for healthy, diverse genetic matches. The exceptions are women using birth control pills, who consistently choose men with the wrong immune systems. Some scientists think that many men are attracted to blond women because of a male predisposition to choose youthful mates. Fair hair is generally considered a biological indicator of youth, especially among certain races - since more children than adults are blond. N° de réf. du vendeur AAS9780140263480
