Synopsis: For thousands of years, traditional societies have been coping with the same problems of human existence that we face today. Yet, until recently, the modern world has tended to ignore their possible contributions, which can offer different views of the world to significantly enlarge our understanding of what humanity really is. From the deserts of Africa to the rainforests of Brazil, this book investigates traditional societies and gains insight into alternative ways of living by exploring different approaches to marriage, wealth, law and order, cultural integration, spirituality and wisdom. The book ties in with a ten-part BBC television series.

From Publishers Weekly: Harvard anthropologist Maybury-Lewis argues that the ancient wisdom, communal sharing and closeness to nature found in tribal societies hold survival lessons for our modern industrial society steeped in wastes and rootlessness. The companion volume to a PBS television series hosted by the author, this beautiful, intriguing album surveys 11 traditional societies, from the Gabra who thrive in Kenya's northern desert to the Makuna Indians of Colombia whose belief in the sacredness of fish-spawning places helps prevent plundering. Spliced with stunning photographs, engravings and maps in jazzy layouts, the text examines how indigenous peoples negotiate gender identity, family ties, sex, governance, old age, death and all-pervasive religious beliefs while fending off technological onslaught. An enlightening multicultural primer. 100,000 first printing; BOMC and QPB selections; author tour.
