Jared Diamond speaks on: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?

Jared Diamond, bestselling author of COLLAPSE and Guns, Germs, and Steel, surveys the differences between "traditional" societies and industrial or post-industrial societies, with an eye to the question: what can we learn from the former that can make the world we live in a better place for all of us? People are basically all the same everywhere. "Not exactly," says Jared Diamond, in his rich new book, THE WORLD UNTIL YESTERDAY: WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM TRADITIONAL SOCIETIES?, the successor to his multimillion-copy bestsellers GUNS GERMS AND STEEL and COLLAPSE.
