Product Description:

The no. 1 bestselling author of Collapse and Guns Germs and Steel explores the profound lessons that traditional societies offer us today. Over the past 500 years the West achieved global dominance but do Westerners necessarily have better ideas about how to raise children care for the elderly or simply live well? In this epic journey into our past Jared Diamond reveals that traditional societies around the world offer an extraordinary window into how our ancestors lived for the majority of human history - until virtually yesterday in evolutionary terms. Drawing on decades of his own fieldwork Diamond explores how tribal people approach essential human problems from health and diet to conflict resolution and language and discovers they have much to teach us. Jared Diamond is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the seminal million-copy-bestseller Guns Germs and Steel which was named one of Time's best non-fiction books of all time and Collapse a number 1 international bestseller. A professor of geography at UCLA and noted polymath Diamond's work has been influential in the fields of anthropology biology ornithology ecology and history among others.
