Über diesen Titel


The Ape of Sorrows examines humans and our behaviors in a new and captivating way and presents our species as a being of sorrows who thousands of years ago, lost its original or fixed habitat.

Maurice Rowdon has authored several books on animal/human intelligence and opens with a gripping retelling of the monkey brawl at the London zoo during the 1930s - a scene that illustrates the power of sexuality and instinct to affect animal behavior. As Rowdon shares the results of his intense studies of and comparisons between humans and animals, he portrays the human as he truly is - the least intelligent animal of all the creatures, while emphasizing the fact that even today, modern science continues to struggle to catch up with nature. As Rowdon diplomatically challenges long-held scientific beliefs, he offers his own theories as he carefully measures impulse versus astuteness in both the human and animal and why either creature may eventually leave its habitat enhanced or depleted.

Manifestations of the human being's need to conquer everything in its path are evident everywhere in the world today. The Ape of Sorrows provides valuable insight and the unique opportunity to view humans without self-condemnation as an eroded species dedicated to its own destruction.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
