The Lucifer Principle is a revolutionary work that explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behavior, and culture to put forth the thesis that "evil" is a by-product of nature's strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric. "An act of astonishing intellectual courage." -- Leon Uris; "Destined to be the Future Shock of our time." -- Spin; "A revolutionary vision of the relationship between psychology and history, The Lucifer Principle will have a profound impact on our concepts of human nature. It is astonishing that a book of such importance could be such a pleasure to read." -- Elizabeth F. Loftus, Professor of Psychology, University of Washington, and author of Memory and Eyewitness Testimony.

Masterful." --Mark Graham, The Rocky Mountain News "The Lucifer Principle is a long step forward to understand human biology. Its original assessment is brilliant; its historical facts are unassailable . . . . An outstanding book." --Dr. Richard Bergland, M.D., founder of the Department of Neurology, Sloan-Kettering, and author of The Fabric of the Mind "A revolutionary vision of the relationship between psychology and history, The Lucifer Principle will have a profound impact on our concepts of human nature.
