The Brotherhood of Fear

$4.99 | Amazon Kindle

From the original 1957 edition: To catalogue the compelling qualities of this astonishing novel is a challenge of no small proportions. It is a novel of pursuit and adventure, as thrilling as any that has come down the pike in many a year, comparable, we think, to the best of Graham Greene and Eric Ambler.

Worlds Beginning 

$4.99 | Amazon Kindle

From the original 1944 edition: The time of Worlds Beginning is twenty years following the end of World War II. The problems of peace are no longer vague and theoretical problems: here, as real as if it were taking place before our eyes, is what might happen within another score of years.

The Territorial Imperative

A territory is an area of space which an animal guards as its exclusive possession and which it will defend against all members of its kind. In this revolutionary book Robert Ardrey takes a concept familiar to every biologist, brings together for the first time a fair sampling of all scientific observations of this form of behavior, and demonstrates that man obeys the same laws as does many other animal species.

The Social Contract

$9.99 | Amazon Kindle

“Violation of biological command has been the failure of social man. Vertebrates though we may be, we have ignored the law of equal opportunity since civilization’s earliest hours. Sexually reproducing beings though we are, we pretend today that the law of inequality does not exist. And enlightened though we may be, while we pursue the unattainable we make impossible the realizable.”

The Hunting Hypothesis

$9.99 | Amazon Kindle

“For millions of years we have survived as hunters. In the few short millennia since our divorce from that necessity there has been no time for significant biological change - anatomical, physiological, or behavioral.
