In this brilliant and profound study the distinguished American anthropologist Marvin Harris shows how the endless varieties of cultural behavior -- often so puzzling at first glance -- can be explained as adaptations to particular ecological conditions. His aim is to account for the evolution of cultural forms as Darwin accounted for the evolution of biological forms: to show how cultures adopt their characteristic forms in response to changing ecological modes. "[A] magisterial interpretation of the rise and fall of human cultures and societies." -- Robert Lekachman, Washington Post Book World "Its persuasive arguments asserting the primacy of cultural rather than genetic or psychological factors in human life deserve the widest possible audience." -- Gloria Levitas The New Leader "[An] original and...urgent theory about the nature of man and at the reason that human cultures take so many diverse shapes." -- The New Yorker "Lively and controversial." -- I.

Interesante prueba de la interrelacion de la cultura con el medio ecológico. bien escrito, divertido, sin embargo algunas conclusiones han quedado desactualizadas por los avances científicos ( )

Precursor to Jared Diamond's more extensive "Guns, Germs and Steal," Harris posits a form of cultural determinism that explains the development of different cultural forms through ecological forces. A potentially dry topic is made grimly fascinating by his combination of engaging prose, dry wit and eye for morbid turns of phrase. ( )
