about this item

This book challenges those who argue that we can change the world by changing the way people think. Harris shows that no matter how bizarre a people's behavior may seem, it always stems from concrete social and economic conditions.
An anthropologist speculates on the origins of bizarre and mysterious human lifestyles, customs, and institutions throughout history
