On Fertile Ground by Peter T. Ellison
Book DescriptionRanging from the latest achievements of modern fertility clinics to the lives of subsistence farmers in the rain forests of Africa, this book offers both a broad and a minutely detailed exploration of human reproduction. Ellison combines the perspectives of anthropology, stressing the range and variation of human experience; ecology, sensitive to the two-way interactions between humans and their environments; and evolutionary biology, emphasizing a functional understanding of human reproductive biology and its role in our evolutionary history. Whether contrasting female athletes missing their periods and male athletes using anabolic steroids with Polish farm women and hunter-gatherers in Paraguay, or exploring the intricate choreography of an implanting embryo or of a nursing mother and her child, this book advances a rich explanation of the mechanisms by which we reproduce and the evolutionary forces behind their design.

But in these relationships, so critical to our well-being, might we also detect the workings, even directives, of biology? This book examines the intimate role of endocrinology in social relationships.
