""The Lucifer Principle" is a tour de force, a brilliant and seminal work." -Sol Gordon, Ph.D., founder of the Institute for Family Research and Education
"An act of astonishing intellectual courage." -Leon Uris
"Readers will be mesmerized by the mirror Bloom holds to the human condition . . . . his style is engaging, witty, and brisk . . . . He draws on a dozen years of research into a jungle of scholarly fields . . . and meticulously supports every bit of information." --"The Washington Post"

From the Publisher

Covering the entire span of the Earth's as well as mankind's history, this ambitious and revolutionary book explores the intricate relationship between evolution, emotion, genes, and culture to put forth the thesis that "evil" is a by-product of nature's strategies for creation. The Lucifer Principle probes depression and elation, idealism and greed, revealing the surprising ways in which evolution has implanted her tactics in our bodies, minds, and in our mass psychology.
