Man the Hunter by Richard B. Lee & Irven DeVore 1973
MAN THE HUNTER. The first intensive survey of a single, crucial stage of human development, man's one universal way of life. Richard B. Lee and Irven DeVore (Editors). Aldine Publishing Company, Chicago, 1973.
"Focusing intensively on a single stage of human development for the first time in anthropological literature, this book brings together a multidisciplinary body of theory and research data on hunter-gatherers and throws important re-evaluative light on anthropological theories of social structure, ecology, and the evolution of human behavior. About 90 per cent of the 80 billion people who have inhabited the earth were hunter-gatherers, and the editors and contributors underscore the urgency of further research into this rapidly vanishing way of life. The first half of the book is devoted to the presentation of new data on contemporary hunters, with discussion and evaluation of current issues. The second half considers the relevance of the new data to the reconstruction of the past."
Only mild cover wear. Few underlined pages up front otherwise good.
