Synopsis

This inquiry begins with the puzzle of sibling relations. Why are individuals from the same family little more similar in personality than people from different families? Why doesn't a shared family environment lead to similar values and beliefs? Sulloway suggests a fresh way of understanding how family affects individual development. Among siblings, the most important factor for systematically understanding the sources of individual differences is birth-order. This work shows how birth-order is so fundamental to the family experience that its effects transcend gender, social class, nationality and time. Using historical examples from scientific revolutions, the French Revolution and the Protestant Reformation, this work shows that Marx was mistaken when he located the engine of historical change between families. The engine of history lies in individual differences arising within the family.

Einleitungssatz
IT IS A long way in time and space from the bathroom of my Grandmother Mowat's house in Oakville, Ontario, to the bottom of a wolf den in the Barren Lands of central Keewatin, and I have no intention of retracing the entire road which lies between. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Format: Taschenbuch
"Never Cry Wolf" is one of Canadian author Farley Mowat's first works and it's a beauty. Told with humour and verve and a tongue very much in the cheek, it is nevertheless a serious inquiry into what motivates man to do the things he does. One can see Mowat sitting up there in the ice and snow of the Arctic, scratching away at what was then a healthy head of hair and the beginnings of a very respectable beard, wondering, "what on earth can they be thinking of," as he tries to deal with the odd behaviour of government machinery thousands of miles away to the south. Further, and this is I suppose the point of the book, what is he to do about this animal he has been sent, not to study, but to convict, who simply won't behave like the awful predator he is alleged to be? Why is man disposed to decide upon things first, and then learn the truth afterwards (often when it is too late)? And having found out the truth of the matter for himself, what should Mowat do about it? Well, I think the subsequent career of this ardent defender of natural causes speaks for itself. In fact, just before you read his environmental masterpiece, "Sea of Slaughter," you should read this. It's the tip of the iceberg, but it will perhaps soften the blow.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von R. D. Allison (dallison@biochem.med.ufl.edu) am 12. Juni 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
This book by the Canadian naturalist Farley Mowat, which was made into a film in 1983, is an account, often humorous, of Mowat's study of the natural behavior of the arctic wolf in the treeless environs of northern Canada in the late 1940s. He had been sent up there to study the wolf and bring back data on how much the wolf population had been the apparent cause of the large decline in the caribou population. What he discovered was a detailed family life and the controversial observation that there no threat at all for the caribou (or to humans) from the wolves. This book is a classic in conservation literature. It shows the love man has of nature and how we should protect it. As most ranchers will tell you, coyotes are much more of a problem than wolves and wolves help keep the coyote population down.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 10. Dezember 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
Sent by a government agency to establish the facts against the arctic wolf, by proving that it was a resolute and unflinching killer of caribou, the youthful Mowat actually discovered (for what was not to be the only time in his life) that man was the only serious threat in the North and that the wolf was quietly feasting on mice instead of "deer". A heart-rending tale, told by a true believer in all things animal and human, this is a book which should be compulsory reading for all schoolchildren. Mowat has done us a great service by pointing out that we cannot continue to treat the natural world as if its many denizens were of no importance, even to us. Finding out the truth about the wolf also helped Mowat, and us, find out something very important about ourselves; it's a lesson we need to learn and relearn and never forget. Never Cry Wolf will long remain a startling but lonely cry from a remote wilderness.

Format: Taschenbuch
I got the book hoping to learn the human experience of such an amazing challenge. An experience like that must have such a profound impact on a man's psyche, but I felt he masked all of this with shallow quips and wordsmithing. Way too much salesmanship and way too little reality.

Format: Taschenbuch
"Never Cry Wolf" is about a man who is sent to the Wolf House Bay to discover how wolves live. This is a desolate place and there are no other people living in that area for miles around. The man finds out where the wolves den is and when the wolves are not there he hikes over to the den and looks around. He learns a lot about the wolves and how they live and love him.
Mowatt tells in the story how the wolves communicate to each other and hunt together. Mowatt does a lot of research on the way wolves live. Mowatt explains all the details in the story, such as when the wolves leave to hunt and what they are hunting. Wolves hunt deer and caribou, but when there were no caribou they will eat mice. Wolves will generally hunt in packs so there are more of them if they have to bring down a large animal.

Format: Taschenbuch
"Never Cry Wolf" is a true story about Farly Mowat's studies of wild wolves in Alaska. The book details his studies and observations of one particular pack of wolves. In his studies, he conducts an experiment to see if a large animal (human) can survive strictly on field mice, and he is the guinea pig. He does this because he notices that this is all the wolf family is eating in the spring, and he wanted to see if it was really possible.
This book is an excellent selection for any reader interested in wolves or an Alaskan adventure. Also any reader interested in a lot of feeling and emotion would be completely satisfied.

Von Ein Kunde am 17. März 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
'Never Cry Wolf' is fiction, although it was published as non-fiction. The wolves in the book often behave in quite unrealistic ways. Unless you're looking for a textbook, that barely matters; Mowat's style more than makes up for his lapses in scientific rigour. He writes with zest, economy and impeccable lightness of touch. The book is filled with gentle humour, much of which is indirect. Watch out for it or you may miss it.

I unreservedly recommend 'Never Cry Wolf'. But be warned: if you love wolves, have a friend nearby while you read the last page.
