Making war is not inevitable. My latest book "War and Sex and Human Destiny" takes a well-researched and comprehensive look at the many reasons why. War is not an inescapable result of human nature! In this book, I explore this fact from the perspective of an evolutionary biologist examining the subject of war from both a biological and anthropological perspective to explain why we can be sure that war is not something that is “in our genes.” I also use the biological phenomenon called sexual dimorphism to explain why any attempt to end war that will endure must including the empowerment of women.
