Review of The World Until Yesterday

Worth a look:  In The Guardian, this critical but informative review of the new book The World Until Yesterday by Jared Diamond (Guns, Germs and Steel), written by Wade Davis (The Serpent and the Rainbow).  Davis presents an overview of anthropological thought as he looks at the successes and faults of Diamond’s work.  Spoiler alert: he writes, “A book of great promise reads as a compendium of the obvious, ethnology by anecdote.”
