Very Good/Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" Tall Octavo 0002161206 Hardback Hardback. First Edition. Cannibals and Kings. Slight shelf wear and a couple of repairs to top edge of D/J. Why did the Stone Age hunters lead such prosperous lives? Why did the Aztecs eat their prisoners of war? Why have so many cultures permitted the murder of female infants? Why do men think they are better than women? Why do the Chinese drink so little milk? In this brilliant and profound study the distinguished American anthropologist Marvin Harris shows how the endless avaities of cultural behaviour can be explained as adaptions to particular ecological conditions. He accounts for the evolution of cultural forms as Darwin accounted for the evolution of biological forms. 239 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, and all types of Academic Literature. )
