The Sociobiology of Ethnocentrism: Evolutionary Dimensions of Xenophobia, Discrimination, Racism, and Nationalism

This book presents sociobiological studies which focus on the topic of in-group/out-group behaviour, a topic which includes ethnocentrism, xenophobia, nationalism and racism. In what sense are there biological, particularly evolutionary and genetic, explanations for intolerance of or aggression towards those who are not members of one's group? Such behaviour may be of adaptive advantage in the process of evolution by natural selection. However, particularly in the evolution of human nature and culture, such arguments are problematic. This book develops many relevant themes, covering issues that range from kin selection and altruism to national socialism and race relations.
