This book moves through the last hundred centuries before recorded history began, and across every continent, to report some of the greatest detective work of modern times-the search for clues to human beginnings, the mysteries of the founding of society. "Whatever the future, man is moving into it faster and faster, swept up in a revolution that started 10,000 years ago when all the world was a wilderness and he was a wild animal living essentially as his ancestors had lived for millions of years - foraging within his home ranges, exploiting other wild species, and moving on when local abundances dwindled." The first popular account of the rise of the Establishment, ow power structures and hierarchies, wealth, poverty, slavery, social class, the elites, sexism, agricultures, cities and states, art and music, propaganda and tradition, kings and gods - and how each of these served the others
