Book cover of Race, Monogamy, and Other Lies They Told You, Second Edition: Busting Myths about Human Nature by Agustin Fuentesby  Agustín Fuentes

A compelling takedown of prevailing myths about human behavior, updated and expanded to meet the current moment.   
There are three major myths of human nature: humans are divided into biological races; humans are naturally aggressive; and men and women are wholly different in behavior, desires, and wiring. Race, Monogamy, and Other Lies They Told You counters these pervasive and pernicious myths about human behavior. Agustín Fuentes tackles misconceptions about what race, aggression, and sex really mean for humans, and incorporates an accessible understanding of culture, genetics, and evolution that requires us to dispose of notions of “nature or nurture.”
