The Costs of Civilization
- By Roy on 08-01-10
Should be required reading in anthropology courses
This is the book I've been wanting to write for years. These topics are my areas of academic interest, and I think Wells "gets it". Understanding people and our behavior tells us exactly how we got where we are, and ONLY understanding can help save us from our own nature.
