From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Denial of Death, a penetrating and insightful perspective on the source of evil in our world.

“A profound, nourishing book…absolutely essential to the understanding of our troubled times.” —Anais Nin

“An urgent essay that bears all the marks of a final philosophical raging against the dying of the light.” —Newsweek

“Brilliant and challenging…adds another bit of reason to balance destruction…It is, in the best sense of the words, both scientific and philosophical…of the highest importance.” —Los Angeles Times

Ernest Beckner (1924–1974) won the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction for The Denial of Death. A distinguished social theorist and a popular teacher of anthropology, sociology, and social psychology, he was also the author of Revolution in Psychiatry, Angel in Armor, and The Structure of Evil.
