Reprint. [First: 1961] From the cover: “African Genesis is a personal investigation into the animal origins and nature of man. Some years ago, Robert Ardrey became aware of the growing evidence that man had evolved on the African Continent from carnivorous, predatory stock, and that the systematic use of weapons had been an invention made long before the time of man. Mr. Ardrey’s immediate absorbtion in these discoveries sprang from the radical new light they cast on the eternal question. Why do we behave as we do?
