  • The Hadza

    In The Hadza, Frank Marlowe provides a quantitative ethnography of one of the last remaining societies of hunter-gatherers in the world. The Hadza, who inhabit an area of East Africa near the Serengeti and Olduvai Gorge, have long drawn the attention of anthropologists and archaeologists for maintaining a foraging lifestyle in a region that is key to understanding human origins. Marlowe ably applies his years of research with the Hadza to cover the traditional topics in ethnography--subsistence, material culture, religion, and social structure. But the book's unique contribution is to introduce readers to the more contemporary field of behavioral ecology, which attempts to understand human behavior from an evolutionary perspective. To that end, The Hadza also articulates the necessary background for readers whose exposure to human evolutionary theory is minimal.

    Hmm. Interesting. I visited with these people when I was in Tanzania last year. They taught me how to shoot a bow and make fire with a stick.

      Are you trying to make money as an Amazon associate? You just posted a summary of a book and didn't even say what you thought about it.

        What I thought? It's crap.


        As to your other comment -- if I were an Amazon affiliate, which i'm not, how would Amazon know I had referred anyone if I were to post their own bare URL with the product number, as I did there? How on earth? It's a mystery to me.

        The links are there, both because Amazon is a source used by many people, and because it's an easy way of showing details about a book. If you want the book, but don't want to use Amazon, write the ISBN down and take it to the store you use. If you're not interested in the book, why did you post at all?

          Why did you think they were crap? I haven't read either of the titles you cited. But I'm curious.

          ETA : Oh, I guess it's only one book.

            You should've said SOMETHING about it.

            My mistake. I don't know how the affiliate system works. I don't like being blatantly sold something in an area that is not supposed to have advertisements. That's why I said something.

              Emilio Pucci bringer brights med nye pyton sm?tt tilbeh?r

              Selv den stroppen p? denne posen er ganske snobbete. Alle Pulsvarmere jeg eier bruker en flat, tynt stykke l?r ? feste posen til h?ndleddet, men Burberry stedet valgte ? g? med en full-on valset l?rh?ndtak. Den lille ber?ring g?r en lang vei ? forklare hvordan uventet luksuri?se resten av posen er, fra de doble interi?r rom med en mobiltelefon sporet til tonal vevd l?r p? utsiden.

                Why would you start a thread apparently pimping a book you think is cramp?
