What can we learn from traditional societies?

Jared Diamond provides a firsthand picture of the human past as it had been for millions of years and considers what the differences between that past and our present mean for our lives today. He doesn't romanticize traditional societies but he finds that their solutions to universal human problems such as child rearing, elder care, dispute resolution, risk and physical fitness have much to teach us.
