Resumo:

Before consciousness formed and tools were made, before speech was learned and cultures were established, before religion, society, politics, and war, came a simple evolutionary change: one primate, our common ancestor, took the first upright step. So begins our family history ... the story told by Marvin Harris in Our Kind. The tale explores topics as varied as how the different races arose; why marriage and the nuclear family were established; why we overeat; how men came to dominate politics; why women have longer life-spans; why yuppies are such conspicuous consumers; how war has come to overshadow us, and whether it always will ... and a great deal more. -- from back cover.

Very educational

por chrispollitt (Usuário WorldCat publicado 2015-03-20) Excelente Permalink

I learned a lot. The author cogently and clearly puts forward his theories on many facets of human life from religion to hierarchy. I also like how the chapters are short and concise. Well worth the read.
