Adam’s Curse: A Future without Men

Bryan Sykes, the Oxford Professor of Human Genetics, examines the furious decay of the male Y-chromosome and asks, 'why are there only two sexes?'.

Is there a genetic cause for men’s promiscuity? Is there such a thing as the male homosexual gene? And can science offer an explanation for the rise of patriarchal society?
