A Natural History of Rape: Biological Bases of Sexual Coercion is a 2000 book by the biologist Randy Thornhill and the anthropologist Craig T. Palmer, in which the authors argue that rape should be understood through evolutionary psychology, and criticize the idea, popularized by the feminist author Susan Brownmiller in Against Our Will (1975), that it is an expression of male domination that is not sexually motivated.
