Lewis Carroll's Red Queen had to keep running to stay in the same place. And so, argues the author, do the rest of us. Sexual reproduction makes no sense in conventional theories of evolution; simple cloning is much more efficient. But sex maintains a genetic flux within a species which enables disease to be successfully resisted. This book looks at recent changes in evolutionary biology and throws fresh light on seduction and sexism, beauty and polygamy, attraction and adultery - even intelligence itself. The author also wrote "Warts and All", about US presidential politics.
