Summary
Sexual harassment, date rape, and domestic violence dominate the headlines and have recently sparked scholarly debates about the nature of the sexes. Concurrently, the scientific community is conducting more research on the topics of sexual conflict and coercion today than at any other time in the history of the social sciences. Despite this attention, these issues are being addressed from two different perspectives which have been assumed to be essentially different: one is labeled "feminist," while the other is evolutionary and emphasize reproductive strategies in understanding conflict between the sexes. This book brings together leading experts from both sides of the debate in order to discover how each discipline can offer insights lacking in the order. The editors' overall goal is first to show how the feminist and evolutionary approaches, while appearing unrelated, are in fact complementary and, second, to provide an integration and synthesis. Indeed, several of the contributors to this unique volume consider themselves advocates of both approaches. As a stimulating presentation of the dynamics of sex, power, and conflict - and a pioneering rapprochement of the diverse tendencies within the scientific community - this book will attract a wide audience in both psychology and women's studies
