9780060927905: Dark Nature: A Natural History of Evil

Biologist and naturalist Lyall Watson, the bestselling author of Supernature, now brings forth a groundbreaking study of evil. Utilizing a vast array of sources, from Charles Darwin to Annie Dillard, Watson examines the driving forces behind behavior as well as the invisible order that preserves the delicate balance between "civilized" society and anarchy. "Dark Nature" is a monumental exploration of the forces that hold our world together.
