In Conflicts of Fitness: Islam, America, and Evolutionary Psychology, A.S. Amin examines various aspects of Islamic tradition through a Darwinian framework. Islam’s allowance of polygamy, the underlying reasons for the subordination of women in many Muslim societies, and the seeds of political instability and terrorism in the Muslim world are just a few of the important issues this book addresses.

Amin also offers original insight into many aspects of American society and history. Through the filter of biologically based theories, he explores the reasons behind the monumental changes in sexual mores that have occurred in the United States over the past century, the underpinnings of feminism, and the differences between liberals and conservatives. This text also analyzes the lyrics of many famous rappers, in the belief that hip-hop has arguably become the most influential form of cultural expression in America today.

An astute and entertaining work that compares and contrasts American culture with that of the Muslim world from a perspective inspired by evolutionary psychology, Conflicts of Fitness presents many thought-provoking tools to those in search of greater understanding of these two dynamic cultures and worlds.
