About the Author

Anne Campbell is a Professor of Psychology at Durham University. After completing her D.Phil. on female delinquency at Oxford University, she worked in the United States for eleven years studying girl gang members and violent crime. Since then, she has taken an evolutionary approach to understanding sex differences in aggression, focusing on the psychological mechanisms that mediate behavioural differences between men and women. She has published 5 books, and won the Distinguished Publication Award from Association for Women in Psychology. She has written over 90 academic articles on topics such as female crime, intimate partner violence, one night stands, competition, gender development, impulsivity, fear, hormonal effects, and mental representations of aggression.


`Review from previous edition In her readable and thought-provoking account, Campbell argues that there are profound differences between women, and that this is both a cause and a consequence of directional selection on female psychology... Campbell provides an excellent taxonomy of nine classes of feminism This book will stimulate an important debate and ensure that evolution cannot be ignored.' Anne Magurran, Times Literary Supplement `A Mind of Her Own is a well-organized, well-written, up-to-date textbook on evolutionary psychology, which stands out from the pack.' Trends in Cognitive Science `This is an important and challenging book taht may change how you think about human nature and gendered psychology' Phyllis Chesler, Emerita Professor Psychology and Women's Studies `A fascinating and intellectually deep tour of the evolutionary psychology of women. Campbell's book provides insights into some of the most profound mysteries of human nature... destined to become a classic' David M. Buss
