Synopsis:

What Place for Hunter-Gatherers in Millennium Three takes a hard look at the traumatic cultural changes that our planet's remaining hunter-gatherer societies experienced in the twentieth century, and the precarious future that is about to engulf them in the twenty-first century. The nine authors in this volume all agree that the foraging way of life, humankind's most successful adaptation for many thousands of years, has come to a close with the end of the second millennium.

Case studies are presented here looking at the past and the uncertain future for post-foraging societies, and specifically the central African Pygmies, the San Bushmen, and the Agta Negritos. Interwoven with these chapters are emphases on tropical deforestation and indigenous human rights, looking at these through the framework of human ecology.

As Alan Barnard states, "If the human rights of proud former foraging peoples are given the attention they deserve, then there can be a bright future for them in Millennium Three. The task is not an easy one, but this book will help greatly to focus our attention on the issues that matter."

Reviews

"Unique, clearly written, and very instructive book. It examines both the difficult times hunter-gatherers have gone through ... and the stinging predicament they continue to face in the third millennium.... A tale of misery and betrayal as well as holding out a bit of hope and optimism.... Very suitable for advanced courses in undergraduate anthropology." RALOYSIUS MA. L. CANETE, Arizona State U, Philippine Q of Culture & Society

"The volume is informative with regard to the practical issues that besiege hunter-gatherer populations.... Paints a picture of a changing world that currently threatens the culture and the lives of hunter-gatherers." MONICA FA W. SANTOS, Philippine Studies

"[This book is about] the human and ecological impacts of the industrialized world's assault on rainforest habitats.... Provides rare comparative material ... on the changing situations of a variety of hunter-gatherers.... Headland uses photographs to good effect to describe how the Agta were forced from a 'Forager Phase' into a ... 'Peasant Phase'.... Despite the appalling situations described, the authors have presented a hopeful image of the future for former hunter-gatherers." JEROME LEWIS, London School of Economics, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
