Sex, Genes and Rock ‘n’ Roll: How evolution has shaped the modern world

Rob Brooks

Why are we all getting fatter? Why are we fascinated by pop music and celebrities? Is there any hope of curbing population growth, rampant consumerism and the environmental devastation they wreak?

Evolutionary scientist Rob Brooks argues that the origins of these twenty-first century problems can be found where the ancient forces of evolution collide with modern culture and economics.

In Sex, Genes and Rock ‘n’ Roll Brooks explores a tasting platter of topics, from the frivolous to the tragic - falling in love, making music, our obsession with rock ‘n’ roll, mating, fertility, obesity, consumption, and more - illustrating how evolution stands alongside economics, anthropology, psychology and political science in shaping our world.
