The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?

by Jared Diamond - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141024486 | ISBN 10: 0141024488

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.
 
The World Until Yesterday is a mesmerizing sweep through all humanity that offers profound lessons for how to live today.
