Read full description of the books:



This book is about the human ecology of society and cities, describing the evolutionary processes from the the point of Pre-Habiline to Neolithic society - explaining the relationship between the brain function and the limits of society. Ultimately, with the advent of modern language and the frontal cortex we developed complex culture as a new survival tool.

What is most interesting about the book is how it carefully illustrates the various biological processes, and limits, of the brain and how this explains certain social structures (both primal and modern). Once this is established, he describes the movement from foraging societies to settled cities - using the dynamics and the resources necessities of cities to describe war and general class conflict up until the industrial revolution.

I really couldn't recommend this book more for anyone interested in how human society is a product of evolution, or how we as individuals are products of evolution. Wonderful book.
