Book Description

10 Oct 2011
The treatment of indigenous and tribal peoples, the world's largest minority, is a major humanitarian issue. It shapes world history and raises profound questions about what it really means to be human. This book explains who these peoples are, how they live, why governments hate them, and why their disappearance is far from inevitable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it and share it! 25 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an important book which demonstrates why tribal peoples are not relics living in the past, condemned to unavoidable oblivion. Nor are they museum artefacts to be catalogued and marvelled at. Tribal peoples can offer us, purportedly the 'civilised' ones, examples of successfully adapted lifestyles and viable approaches to more sustainable and harmonious societies.

At a time of deep and unremitting crisis in the world's predominant socio-economic system, with no viable solution from within its own functional alternative models, tribal peoples remain a powerful source of hope for a better future.

Read it and share it.

A highly recommended book - excellent for students of anthropology or anyone interested in this fascinating and important topic. I found it engaging and entertaining, and it leaves no area of this often difficult subject uncovered.

5.0 out of 5 stars We have much to learn 1 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been interested in the world of indigenous tribal people since studying Marshal Sahlin's work on the 'original affluent societies' some two decades ago. Stephen's book is comprehensive, evocative and down to earth.
My son recently completed a project for secondary school at key stage 3 (year 8) on the Tropical Rainforests and we discussed the information that the author compiled from his travels/experience. Together with the documentary by Bruce Parry, 'Tribe' and the BBC 2011 Human Planet programme especially episode 6 on the Jungle - our eyes were opened to the incredible wealth that these people continue to have. I intend to support the charity Survival International that the author works on behalf of. The capitalist-technological horse bolted long ago but we have much still to learn from the people described in this book and they deserve protection from the forces of extraction and exploitation which our consumer society exposes them needlesly to.
