Evolution and social justice: curious connections

One great thing about the Conversation, where I often write, is that it makes accessible the work of  Australian researchers across a great diversity of fields. These include many in which I have had only a passing interest and very little knowledge. One of these researchers, an evolutionary biologist is Professor Rob Brooks who also writes for the Conversation.

I came across a book by Brooks at the local library recently, a book I would normally have passed over but borrowed on this occasion, as a result of reading his articles. The book is entitled Sex, Genes, and Rock n’ Roll published by New South Books in 2011.

Turns out an intriguingread from many angles but most of all in relation to what Brooks has to say about how decent social policy, an agenda for social justice and rights for women can foster the best outcomes from an evolutionary perspective….

work in progress on this post….
