Do we owe it all to Darwin? The adequacy of evolutionary psychology as an explanation for gender differences in aggression
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (2):228-229 (1999)

While some of these conditions may reflect resource scarcities as Campbell proposes, others are inconsistent with her perspective or are explained equally well by other perspectives.
