This site provides an introduction to the ideas of James Graham, especially his provocative proposal that lethal cancer played a central role in the origin and evolution of complex animals.
He also introduces his work on alcoholism. Taking a highly original approach, he argues convincingly that alcoholism causes rampant egomania in its early and middle stages with the result that alcoholics tend to be overachievers who ruthlessly victimize others. He identifies scores of famous people as alcoholics and explains why they behaved so destuctively. In his most provocative chapters he identifies as alcoholics important historical figures including Alexander the Great, Ivan the Terrible, Henry VIII and the monstrous Joseph Stalin.
On this site you will be able to link to reviews and other published articles about Graham's work, download his provocative analysis of the glaring weaknesses of existing evolutionary theory, and order his books.
