Dj Art: Irving Freeman. Fine in Fine jacket. 547 pages, includes an Index. Loosely inserted is a 5" X 7" glossy picture of Mr. Harris. "Noted anthropologist Marvin Harris tells this tale of our origins and evolution with fascination for our past and concern for our future. He explains why the different races arose; how institutions like marriage and nuclear family began; why men dominate politics and whether women ever have; and how the threat of war has come to overshadow us...and whether it always will. Harris explores questions about ourselves that few of us ever think to ask: Why do we have hair on our heads and not all over our bodies? Why do we overeat? Why did world religions take root? Why do women live longer than men? Why are yuppies such conspicuous consumers? Join him as he retraces the long journey begun by our ancient parents with the first brave step." Excellent copy: tiny (and I do mean tiny) bit of bumping at upper edge of front board and two corners else the book is as new with NO markings throughout. The dj has a tiny bit of bumping at head of spine else it's as new, also, with NO tears/chips/creases. NOT an ex-library, NOT a book club, NOT a remainder, dj NOT price-clipped ("$24.95"). Fine in Fine dj.
