Hardcover Book, The Territorial Imperative, Robert Ardrey, Science, Anthropology, Sociology, Nonfiction

A hard covered book entitled The Territorial Imperative (A Personal Inquiry into the Animal Origins of Property and Nations) by Robert Ardrey. Published in Great Britian in 1967, Second Impression.

In The Territorial Imperative Robert Ardrey explores man's evolutionary nature and jeopardize some of our most precious assumptions. In a time when we attribute to man either no instincts at all, or instincts too weak to be of significance, Mr. Ardrey's conclusions concerning the instinctual force exerted on human life by territory will undoubtedly raise deep thinking. It is a work of wit, of literary wealth, and of high adventure. The author draws on his inexhaustible knowledge of animal ways, and his wife presents her intriguing sketches of animal life. Mr. Ardrey takes his listeners on excursions into the ancient animal world, and penetrations of the contemporary human wilderness. While evolutionary science has advanced markedly since Ardrey's times, his insights on human behavior have a timeless quality, and The Territorial Imperative remains a classic reference for anyone wishing to begin an adventure exploring life's biggest questions.
