The World Until Yesterday


What We Can Learn From Traditional Societies

By Jared Diamond

Before reading this book, I recommend reading Diamond’s “Guns Germs And Steel” and “Collapse.” He has always wondered why the world is the way it is. Here, he compares the way traditional societies resolve issues compared to post-industrial ones. Sometimes if there is no justice from a legal system, people fall back on the old methods. Without recognition of the injury and  a payment of damages, a conflict can continue for generations.
