The tenth edition of Human Societies is more substantially revised and updated than any single new edition of this classic text in the last twenty years. Readers will find the basic theoretical framework of Human Societies unchanged, but the application of this framework has been expended to analyze many of today's current issues and developments.

NEW TO THE 10th EDITION:
o New or expanded material on globalization, outsourcing, prospects for a Chinese century, and the end of cheap oil.
o New and expanded materials on Islamic fundamentalism.
o New unit on the growing generation gap in industrial societies.
o New unit on women in agrarian societies with special sidebar on the recent discovery of 'Women's Secret Language in [pre-modern] China.'
o New and expanded materials on the role of money and moneyed interests in industrial democracies and on the dark side of the Industrial Revolution.
o Statistical data on contemporary societies updated with latest available figures and several valuable new tables.
o Several new sidebars: 'Paris in the Horticultural Era'; 'The Myth of Primitive Environmentalism' (the case of Easter Island per Jared Diamond); 'Changing Catholic Belief and Practice in France and the United States'; and 'Women's Secret Language in China'.
