       Additional Information  
      A keen insight into human nature that poignantly describes the evolution and balance of the moral, religious, psychological, and political forces that mold our society.

    Building on his first novel, The Red Crab Conspiracy, which explored the scientific and technological advances shaping our modern world, in his newest work, The White Crab, George Putney turns his insightful analysis to the societal forces that shape the way we live. We follow the lives of John Boxford and Dante Ferrante from their early childhood in Philadelphia, through the influence of the depression, World War II, and the succeeding decades on their path from young adults to successful businessmen and entrepreneurs. Along their journey we meet Jean deGroot who becomes a militant atheist striking out against religion as big business, John's brother Peter who becomes a decorated general continuing to benefit from the military industrial complex, psychiatrist and author Ben Marcus who abandons his Freudian roots in favor of modern psychoactive drugs, and Trevor Churchill who overcomes racism by teaching inner city youth to speak the Queen's English. Putney uses his keen insight into human nature to create characters who poignantly describe the evolution and balance of the moral, religious, psychological, and political forces that mold our society. Few authors can work so expertly in both the technological and sociological arenas, and Putney's works are must-reads for anyone who strives to understand the forces that have created our modern world.
