Summary: ''''Evolution's Rainbow ''is an expansively creative challenge to the modern orthodoxies of sexual selection. Roughgarden's intellectual generosity may jump-start the careers of a new generation of diversity-affirming Darwinian scientists.''--Patricia Adair Gowaty, author of ''Feminism and Evolutionary Biology ''''An entrancing tale of sexual ambiguity in animals and people, but also that rarest of literary beasts--a science book written from the heart.''--Steve Jones, author of ''Da ...show morerwin's Ghost ''''A thoughtful and scholarly, yet deeply personal, perspective from a brilliant theoretical biologist. This articulate and provocative disquisition is must reading for anyone fascinated by one of the most important contemporary social challenges.''--Simon Levin, author of ''Fragile Dominion''This book challenges not only the assumptions about male-female differences in behavior and homosexual-heterosexual differences, but also the very meanings of 'maleness' and 'femaleness' in physical and biological terms.

She takes her readers on a wonderful journey through ecology and evolution and is a brilliant and talented narrator. ''Evolution's Rainbow will fundamentally change many ongoing conversations on sexuality and science.''--Judith Halberstam, author of ''Female Masculinity''Every now and then science focuses on a subject that matters.

Thus, it is immensely important when a book comes along, written clearly and authoritatively by an eminent scientist, that demonstrates how wrong most people's ideas are about this subject. This is such a book.''--Robert Sapolsky, author of ''A Primate's Memoir ...show less
