North York, ON, Canada Firefly Books Ltd 1988 092065665X Soft Cover Good No Jacket 
092065665X 160 pages including index. Small amount of writing on half title page. Average wear to covers and page corners. A bird book like no other. Concentrating on behaviour rather than species identification, the book delves into why birds act the way they do. It will raise the pleasure of birding to new heights. Starting with scenes as common as a swampy rookery of blue herons or the antics of a nesting nuthatch, the author adds new meaning to the everyday experiences of birders around the world. Learn that: blue herons live in colonies so that members can follow the colony's most successful hunters on forays rather than risk failure on solo expeditions.; female tree swallows commit mass murder against neighbouring offspring and females during nesting season; songbirds adjust their music to suit the eacoustical characteristics of the surrounding terrain, and much more.

New Brunswick, NJ, U.S.A. Rutgers University Press 1989 0813514886 Soft Cover Very Good No Jacket 
0813514886 264 pages including index. The social sciences are in turmoil. There is not even any agreement on the nature of the subject matter. Robin Fox, an anthropologist, has always spoken out for a science of society based on evolutionary theory as a way out of the confusion. Here he shares with us, in essays, his explorations of this contentious subject matter. His focal point is the endemic opposition to any approach based on innate human qualities, and hence any definition of cultural universals. This opposition is deeply ingrained and often irrational, so Fox digs into its past to uncover its philosophical and political underpinnings.
