"The evolution of intimate partner violence" (2011) by David M. Buss, and Joshua D. Duntley explores the concept that sexual conflict in human relationships is an evolutionary trait and that there are many tactics involved, some of which include monetary reward, pleasure, and deception, which are intended to change behaviour for the partner who is trying to mate's benefit. Some of which, end up being of the violent nature. They explore these tactics and adaptive problems, along with how psychology and evolution are connected in these ways, and how animal instincts may play a role.
