      Please forgive me for cluttering up the list with a second message. I should
      have included these CUP titles in my previous message.

      I'd be pleased to hear from any qualified individual interested in reviewing
      one of the Cambridge University Press titles below for 'The Human Nature
      Review'.

      Thinking about Evolution: Historical, Philosophical and Political Perspectives
      Edited by Rama S. Singh, Costas B. Krimbas, Diane Paul, John Beatty
      http://uk.cambridge.org/biosciences/catalogue/0521620708/
      http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0521620708/darwinanddarwini/

      This is the second of two volumes published by Cambridge University Press in
      honor of Richard Lewontin. The first volume, Evolutionary Genetics from
      Molecules to Morphology, honors Lewontin's more technical contributions to
      genetics and evolutionary biology. In this second volume of essays, we honor
      the philosophical, historical, and political dimensions of his work.

      Economics in Nature: Social Dilemmas, Mate Choice and Biological Markets
      Edited by Ronald Noƫ, Jan A. R. A. M. Van Hooff, Peter Hammerstein
      http://uk.cambridge.org/biosciences/catalogue/0521650143/
      http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0521650143/darwinanddarwini/

      Since the development of game theory, the analysis of animal behaviour using
      the theories of economics has become a growing field of biological research in
      which models of games and markets play an important role. Studies of sexual
      selection, interspecific mutualism and intraspecific cooperation show that
      individuals exchange commodities to their mutual benefit; the exchange values
      of commodities are a source of conflict, and behavioural mechanisms such as
      partner choice and contest between competitors determines the composition of
      trading pairs or groups. These 'biological markets' can be examined to gain a
      better understanding of the underlying principles of evolutionary ecology.

      The Primate Fossil Record
      Walter Hartwig
      http://uk.cambridge.org/biosciences/catalogue/0521663156/default.htm
      http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0521663156/darwinanddarwini/

      The first comprehensive treatment of primate paleontology in more than 20
      years. Profusely illustrated and up-to-date, it captures the complete history
      of the discovery and interpretation of primate fossils. The chapters range from
      primate origins to the advent of anatomically modern humans. Each emphasizes
      three key components of the record of primate evolution: history of discovery,
      taxonomy of the fossils, and evolution of the adaptive radiations they
      represent.
