The Oxford Handbook of Evolutionary Perspectives on Violence, Homicide, and War synthesizes the theoretical and empirical work of leading scholars in the evolutionary sciences to produce the first extensive and authoritative review of this literature. The handbook includes chapters on intimate partner violence, child abuse, sibling violence, suicide, adolescent bullying, sexual abuse, religious terrorism, animal cruelty, and several chapters addressing human and non-human intergroup aggression and war. This breadth of coverage is unique, and ensures that the handbook provides essential reading for students and researchers in the fields of psychology, anthropology, criminology, sociology, ethology, biology, and behavioral ecology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is much to like about this book. It provides a diverse set of views and explanations related to violent behaviors, it focuses on an assortment of violent behaviors ranging from homicides to warfare, and it features leading experts on the evolutionary mechanisms related to violence. But what I found to be the most enjoyable and noteworthy aspect of the book is the eclectic group of contributors. These contributors span multiple disciplines and approach the evolutionary understanding of violence from different angles... In sum, The Oxford Handbook of Evolutionary Perspectives on Violence, Homicide, and War represents a top-rate book that should grace the bookshelf of any academician interested in the evolutionary underpinnings to violence. Without a doubt, the chapters will incite debate, foster future research, and perhaps most importantly will inspire future students to pursue evolutionary perspectives in their own areas of interest. * Evolutionary Psychology, June 2013 *
...an easy-to-read book that will appeal to a wide audience. * Doody's Notes, March 2013 *
