    About The Book

    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. Bernard Cohen, front page, The New York Times Book Review
