Why Humans Have Cultures : Explaining Anthropology and Social Diversity, Paperback Book

Why Humans Have Cultures : Explaining Anthropology and Social Diversity Paperback

Part of the OPUS series

Description

Why do humans have such diverse cultures and ways of life?

Michael Carrithers presents an original and powerful answer to this central problem of anthropology, arguing that it is the ways in which people interact, rather than technological advances, that have been of crucial importance in human history.

Lucid and thought-provoking, he draws both on ancient and contemporary examples to show how this perspective forms a firm foundation for the study of culture, society, and history.
