Kevin MacDonald is Professor of Psychology at California State University, Long Beach. His research has focused on developing evolutionary perspectives in developmental psychology, certain historical phenomena (e.g., the origins of monogamous marriage), and ethnic relations. After receiving a Master's degree in evolutionary biology, he received a Ph.D. in Biobehavioral Sciences, both at the University of Connecticut. His dissertation focused on behavioral development in wolves. He continued developmental research during a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Illinios, performing research on human parent-child play, particularly rough-and-tumble play characteristics of fathers. In the area of developmental psychology, he is the author of Social and Personality Development: An Evolutionary Synthesis (Plenum 1988); he is also the editor of two books: Parent-Child Play: Descriptions and Implications (State University of New York Press 1993) and the precursor to his current Sage book, Sociobiological Perspectives on Human Development (Springer-Verlag 1988).
