9780199661725: Evolution and Medicine
Rezension:

In summary, Robert Perlmans Evolution and Medicine is packed with technical details, current research, and important discussions of a number of areas of concern in evolutionary medicine ... It is an excellent resource for those desiring to understand evolutionary medicine beyond the more generalized and popular writings ( Wenda Trevathan, Reports of the National Center for Science Education)

medicine beyond the more generalized and popular writings ( Wenda Trevathan, Reports of the National Center for Science Education in a long time. It aimsand succeedsin providing an easily accessible link between the disciplines of evolutionary biology and medicine.)

The book is written in a concise manner and the prose is clear, with minimal associated jargon. I would gladly recommend this volume to new medical students and practicing physicians alike, as it will surely help them to recognize the deeper evolutionary explanations behind many human diseases. ( Daniel Promislow. Evolution, Medicine and Public Health.)

It is good to see evolutionary medicine come into its own as a discipline, and I can recommend Evolution and Medicine to those looking for an overview of the foundations of this fascinating field. ( American Journal of Human Biology)

[in this] lovely and highly welcome book Perlman brings an important dimension to this debate, which is that the implications for the understanding of medicine are important. His chapters on aging, cancer, host-pathogen coevolution, sexually transmitted diseases, malaria, gene-culture evolution, and man-made diseases are full of insighits. ( Denis Noble, The Physiologist)

Robert L. Perlman's Evolution and Medicine [..] offers a series of examples that beautifully illustrates the relevance of evolutionary thinking in medicine. ( Pierre-Olivier Méthot, Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences)

The well-researched and documented work includes key up-to-date papers. It makes a nice introduction to this timely topic. ( J. E. Platz, Choice)

His [Perlman] choice of subject is so astute, and his writing is so engaging and lucid that I plan to use it as a textbook. ( Michael A. Bell, The Quarterly Review of Biology)
