Chapter ┼ The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies? - Kindle edition by Jared Diamond. Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. for early readers ᗕ By Jared Diamond ះ In the broader scope of evolution, it was only yesterday 11,000 years ago when we progressed from hunter gatherer groups to modern states Along the way, weve changed the ways we resolve disputes, raise children, care for the old, practice faith, nourish ourselves, communicate, and a host of other mundane and monumental human activities Diamond, author of the highly acclaimed Guns, Germs, and Steel 1999 and Collapse 2005 , offers a penetrating look at the ways we have evolved by comparing practices of traditional societies and modern and industrialized societies Diamond draws on his fieldwork in New Guinea, the , Kalahari, and other areas to compare the best and most questionable customs and practices of societies past and present Diamond does not idealize traditional societies, with smaller populations and interest in maintaining group harmony than modern societies organized by governments seeking to maintain order, but he does emphasize troubling trends in declining health and fitness as industrialization has spread to newly developing nations In this fascinating book, Diamond brings fresh perspective to historic and contemporary ways of life with an eye toward those that are likely to enhance our future HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY Publicity and television and media appearances will be full throttle for Diamond, an acclaimed scholar and best selling writer and opinion shaper Vanessa BushUnlike his earlier books, The World Until Yesterday is not concerned with constructing grand theories of historical change Yet when his conceptual assumptions do surface, Diamond reveals his continuing debt to contemporary conventional wisdom He remains in thrall to neoliberal politics and pop evolutionary biological determinism He seems characteristically unaware of the huge historical and anthropological literature complicating the categories of the traditional and the modern His understanding of modern societies is thin, superficial, and overgeneralized He ignores differences created by culture and political economy, making no distinctions among neoliberal capitalism, social democracy, and the authoritarian hybrids emerging in such places as China and Singapore The ideas are muddled and unclear, but the strategy is a familiar one in Big Picture arguments Evolutionary theoryor some crude facsimile of itis trundled onstage to provide legitimacy for an authors claims, regardless of whether the theory has any actual power to illuminate the subject in question Jackson Lears The World Until Yesterday What Can We Learn from The provides a mesmerizing firsthand picture of the human past as it had been for millions years that has mostly
