Description
Information
Using the metaphor of the Red Queen, who has run at full speed to stay where she is, Matt Ridley combines his scientific and journalistic skills to explore a new way of interpreting the human condition.

'Animals and plants evolved sex to fend off parasitic infection. Now look where it has got us. Men want BMWs, power and money in order to pair-bond with women who are blonde, youthful and narrow-waisted... The Red Queen is a brilliant examination of the scientific debates on the hows and whys of sex and evolution; and the unending evolutionary struggle between male and female.'
Nicholas Schoon, Independent

'A delightfully unpompous yet authoritative account of Sexual Darwinism.'
Richard Dawkins, Observer

'A terrific book to have a damn good argument with.'
Marek Kohn, New Statesman
