More About the Author

Robert Ardrey was that rarity in Hollywood, a writer who beat Hollywood and its producers, moguls, and stars at their own game of amassing power, wealth, and respect. Equally comfortable dealing with literary editors such as Bennett Cerf or moguls like Darryl F. Zanuck, he also retained his credibility in the intellectual realm by authoring texts on anthropology, history, and sociology that remain widely respected decades after their publication.

Format: Hardcover
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. Of course we didn't need somebody to tell us that. Yet in 1996 we did need a book, this one as part of popular science of the time to open our eyes to this phenomenon and what it means to us.

Look closer at the subtitle and you too will still be interested "A Personal Inquiry into the Origins of Property and Nations (biological nations)."

Robert Arderey American playwright and screenwriter does what we all do (well most of us) and dives into the anthropology of his day. Therefore this is a great book to see what the general view or at least one person's insight was in the 1960's.

Now of course with hind sight there are plenty of contradictory theories and writings. But we should not overlook this gem.

This book also includes drawings by Berdine Ardrey, an extensive bibliography, and index.
