    • I could almost say this is the book I've always been looking for as a touchstone for my own studies of human life on earth. I wish I had stumbled upon Reader's work earlier; he's wiser, more thorough, and more insightful than the academic celebrities from Paul Ehrlich to Jared Diamond who have attempted similar syntheses of ecology, anthropology and sociology.Unfortunately, like his counterparts, Reader is not a particularly good writer - dry and academic - and his treatment of societies across [...]

    • A fascinating book about the different ways that humans have learned to survive (and thrive) in poor, dangerous and unforgiving environments. Most still existed in the 80s when the book was written, though the Blood Indian and the Northwest Indian societies were dispersed in cities and reserves even then. A book that makes one think somberly about the way globalization, commercialization and consumerism are changing the world and damaging societies that have existed peacefully and successfully f [...]
