The army last month unveiled its new main battle tank, a weapon that it hopes will dominate the battlefields of the 1980's. In an impressive display of martial joie de vivre, the 59-ton behemoth cavorted across the Maryland countryside at speeds averaging 30 miles an hour, at times briefly airborne as it soared with elephantine grace over the hillocky terrain. Firing on the run, with the aid of a laser range finder and ballistic computer, the new tank shot at targets three-quarters of a mile distant, a bright flash of metal against metal signaling a hit every time. Nicholas Wade Science magazine, August 11,1978 (see letters page) The violent Reviewed by June Arnold The Violent Sex: Male Psychobiology and the Evolution of Consciousness, by Laurel Holliday. Bluestocking Books (Berkeley) 1978. 254 pp. $5.00. This book begins with the historical premise that males have universally been just that, the violent sex. Laurel Holliday (co- founder of the late Amazon Quarterly and of Bluestocking Books) states at the outset her motive for researching male violence: "I wanted to know why, for example, sex is the most reliable predicter of how violent a person will be in all cultures, races and classes in recorded history." In setting out to examine male aggression, Laurel's motive was not to prove that women (herself included) were superior to men. Instead she says, "I am making an effort to understand what makes men violent and how they can go about changing, rather than merely listing their atrocities and angrily telling them to clean up their act. I had to understand men this way to ever come to love them, which I found I must for my own growth and wellbeing." This is a book which many women may not be ready for. There are women who will close their ears to all sex-based generalities, those who are terrified of being accused of hating men and those who cannot give up that hating. But for anyone who wants to know what has been happening in biological sex-based research, this is the only book that has been published on that subject. The Violent Sex begins with a stunning chapter on psychobiological sex differences and aggression. At eight weeks (fetal time) the male brain is androgen- ized. There is a direct correlation between androgen and aggression. On some level everyone has always accepted this fact: animal caretakers castrate males in order to tame them. On another level virtually no one accepts this fact-no one suggests that crime could be lessened by decreasing "maleness." Laurel then examines and documents the connections between androgen and aggression. Studies on human males have been limited to measuring the androgen levels already in their blood and correlating these with aggressive behaviors or feelings. The higher the level of testosterone (which is the major androgen in most species) in their blood the higher they scored on standard aggression tests." A description of how the male brain is androgenized follows. Unless the fetal brain is made androgen-sensitive, the baby will be a girl. In the case of most genetically male children, the tiny testes of the fetus secrete androgen which then flows through the bloodstream and reaches the brain, and the nervous system of the individual is permanently altered. Known microscopic sex differences in the brain are that in certain areas of the female brain nerve cells are larger and shaped differently from those in male brains, and that certain cells in the female brain absorb estrogen more readily than the corresponding cells in male brains. Behavioral implications of these differences have not yet been explored. Environmental differences, including the uterine environment, also affect the brain. Because the male fetus must pause during the period in which its brain is being androgenized whereas the female fetus proceeds directly in growth, the female is almost one month ahead of the male at birth. It is now thought that the male infant is more seriously damaged by sensory deprivation in infancy because his slower brain maturity is less able to perceive what little sensory stimulation there might be. Research on the physiology of the brain is just beginning but we have hints that there are size and structure differences between the two hemispheres of the brain which are sex-related.
