Vaulting Ambition is unfortunately out of print and does predate Pinker. For a good treatment of EP in general (and in the vein of VA) I highly recommend Adapting Minds. For a short and robust take down of Pinker's adaptationism when it comes to cognition/psychology, there is Fodor's The Mind Doesn't Work That Way (even the NYRB essay that led to the book suffices to demonstrate Pinker's overreaches).
