THE WORLD UNTIL YESTERDAY
Comparing the practices of traditional societies to those of modern industrialized societies, author Jared Diamond finds traditional solutions in many ways superior to modern ones when it comes to age-old human problems such as child rearing, elder care, dispute resolution, physical fitness, and dealing with risk. He draws extensively from his decades of field work in the Pacific islands, as well as evidence from the Inuit, Amazonian Indians, Kalahari San, and others.
