Evolution's Rainbow: Diversity, Gender, and Sexuality in Nature and People

Narrated by Carrington MacDuffie

A biological reason for tolerance - Akira Touya, Germany

A distinguished evolutionary biologist, Roughgarden takes on the medical establishment, the Bible, social science - and even Darwin himself.

She leads the reader through a fascinating discussion of diversity in gender and sexuality among fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals, including primates.

Evolution's Rainbow explains how this diversity develops from the action of genes and hormones and how people come to differ from each other in all aspects of body and behavior.

Roughgarden reconstructs primary science in light of feminist, gay, and transgender criticism and redefines our understanding of sex, gender, and sexuality.

A new preface shows how this witty, playful, and daring book has revolutionized our understanding of sexuality.
