Very informative , and written in a way that most people will understand. The author appears to be trying to be as objective as he can
in relation to the subject matter. The book * The Iceman Inheritance" is one that should be read by any one that truly wishes to make some positive contribution to a very emotive subject.

Format: Paperback
Probably one of the most complicated books i have ever read, but one of the most mind altering at the same time. This is a challenging book for anyone 'white' to read, but it makes complete sense. There is no denying 'we' are the most Aggressive 'race', the white man is a predator. This book has challenged me, awakened me, scared me and educated me in a few short chapters.

Ok by me 23 Dec. 2013
By Robert Robinson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book about 10 years ago and find it to be credible despite some of the negative reviews.If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it,s a damn duck. They are a war like and aggressive people who are relentless in their thirst for blood, and if you are not careful you can get caught up in their sickness.Where have they gone and not caused death and destruction to the indigenous people of that area?

A Wild and Fascinating Thesis 7 Nov. 2013
By Wal-Mart'Queisha Jenkins - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Notwithstanding his admission of the general scientific bankruptcy of the concept of race as it is usually used, the author of this book accepts that humans can be more or less accurately anthropologically grouped in a way that corresponds to race, based on prehistoric ancestry, and posits that one such "race," Caucasoids, are unique in their aggressiveness due to their Neanderthal ancestry. Bradley's thesis is that Neanderthal "psychobiological" adaptations to a glacial environment underpin what he argues are unique levels of misogyny, racism, warmongering, and perennially escalating, environmentally dangerous, technological "progress."

I was biased towards this book because of the outrageousness of it's thesis, but I was also somewhat disappointed in both the quality and quantity of anthropological evidence. For example, the author's argument for the evolution of Caucasoid misogyny rests in part on the millennia of mutual mistrust between the sexes arising from extreme Neanderthal sexual dimorphism; males and females could barely recognize one another as belonging to the same species. Part of this dimorphism is established by reasoning from the large size of Neanderthal infant crania to the extremely rotund Neanderthal female body that supposedly would have been necessary to survive birthing such creatures; however, the author admits that only two such skulls, one badly damaged, had been found at the time of writing. To his credit, the author admits that his entire argument is lacking in conclusiveness early in the book.

Bradley also traces Caucasoid behavioral inheritance with insightful psychological analysis, but this is necessarily of an even more dubious variety than psychology normally suffers, being that the mind under study is that of a long-extinct species. He invokes a concept called The Chronos Complex to show that a natural pre-historic psychosocial development (recognizance of the past-present-future continuity of life) mixed with maladaptive Neanderthal territoriality projected into the temporal dimension has resulted in Caucasoid societies that are recklessly determined to out-do their ancestors and poised to obliterate the future with their dangerous technologies.

The author also puts forth a fascinating comparison of Western and non-Western cultural elements to illustrate Caucasoid obsession with sex and taming nature with technology. I loved the discussion of sexual mores in Ancient Egypt and China, but I would have preferred a more cursory examination of a larger number of cultural elements, rather than the detailed look at only a few.

Overall, the book was refreshingly unique and terribly thought-provoking, but the discussion of current events and subsequent warnings to check the destructive actions of Western civilization were more practical and compelling than the evidence used to explicate their genesis. The discussion of the various argument points was somewhat disorganized and uneven (some points seemed long-winded), and I couldn't see that the author ever explicitly explained why Neanderthal's were so aggressive in the first place. Also, the content in the chapter entitled "The Concept of Race" was too tangential to warrant the chapter length.

A valuable contribution to the discussion 20 July 2001
By Greg Logan - Published on
Format: Paperback
Michael Bradley, as a member of the Caucasian race, has bravely stepped forward with a valuable contribution to the analysis of Caucasian group behavior, or should I say misbehavior, toward people of color. No matter what your political affiliation or race, anyone who engages in a discussion of race relations is in reality examining why people who call themselves white have such a seemingly inherent animosity to people classified as non-white. Mr. Bradley also asks why Caucasian culture has an adversarial relationship to the planet Earth. It is a rare white person who will even admit the existence of the global system of white supremacy, let alone one who will acknowledge that the group mentality of his race is indeed the source of the racism, pollution, and resource depletion that plague the world.
As part of the system of white supremacy, whites have developed an entire vocabulary (e.g. "affirmative action," "immigration reform," "civil rights," or calling Egypt part of the "Middle East," thereby removing the nation from Africa) which allows them to talk about race without mentioning any explicit racial terms. That way, anyone who speaks candidly about the core of the race problem - white group behavior- can be accused by white people of preaching anti-white racism. I'm sure some Eurocentric people who are only used to receiving "information" that bolsters the white viewpoint will be shocked by some of the things Bradley says; but Eurocentric people need to be shocked out of their extreme xenophobia. I don't neccesarily agree with some of the conclusions the author reaches but I have to commend him for his honesty. Other books that cover the same subject matter but, in my opinion, do a better job of analysis are: The Isis Papers by Dr. Frances Cress-Welsing and, especially, Yurugu by Marimba Ani. I will conclude by saying that anybody interested in truly addressing the problem of white supremacy should include these three books on their essential reading list.

difficult read 12 Jan. 2010
By Jude Anu Mccarney - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If this book was a project for a grade in an english comp class, Bradley would be sent back to rewrite over and over. I had to do independent study to understand the material well enough, to be able to follow his premises. His conclusions, however were intriguing, and sometimes the only thing that kept me struggling with his writing style. The hip comparisons were especially convincing. Another one of his, then theoretical, premises is that the Neanderthal were a different species from Cro magnon. Feb. 2009, science announced that Neanderthal Sapien was in fact a different species. Now science is working on answering the question; could the two interbreed? DNA will soon prove Bradley right or wrong. My money is on Bradley.

The Icy Truth About the Iceman 22 Jan. 2000
By Raymond A. Winbush - Published on
Format: Paperback
I first read this book nearly 10 years ago, and am still amazed at its logical explanation about the aggressive behavior of white Europeans. Since my first reading of it, I have yet to find a more plausible theory about why a small group of nomadic people subsequently known as "whites" maintain such dominance over their women and persons with color. Bradley's book will be denounced by many, pooh-poohed by some, but I would challenge any of these persons to find a more relevant theory on the aggressive behavior of Caucasians. I recommend that it be read at least twice in order to grasp all of its meaning.
