9780449909577: Savages and Civilization: Who Will Survive?

In Indian Givers and Native Roots, renowned anthropologist Jack Weatherford opened the eyes of tens of thousands of readers to the clash between Native American and European cultures. Now, in his brilliant new book, Weatherford broadens his focus to examine how civilization threatens to obliterate unique tribal and ethnic cultures around the world -- and in the process imperils its own existence.

As Weatherford explains, the relationship between "civilized" and "savage" peoples through history has encompassed not only violence, but also a surprising degree of cooperation, mutual influence, trade, and intermarriage. But this relationship has now entered a critical stage everywhere in the world, as indigenous peoples fiercely resist the onslaught of a global civilization that will obliterate their identities. Savages and Civilization powerfully demonstrates that our survival as a species is based not on a choice between savages and civilization, but rather on a commitment to their vital coexistence.

From the Back Cover :

"Highly recommended...Fascinating and insightful .... Goes beyond a description of existing cultures to illuminate. on a global scale, the struggle of these peoples against the loss of their cultural identity....This book should serve as a 'wake-up' call to people everywhere." -- Library Journal

"To read anthropologist Jack Weatherford is to look into the mirror....His sweep is of all of recorded history and earlier, encompassed in these last brief 10,000 years, everything from Han Chinese and aborigines, from Micronesians and Tatars, from Greeks and Egyptians and from Alexander the Great to ethnic cleansing in Bosnia."

-- The Tampa Tribune & Times

"Hugely entertaining." -- Kirkus Reviews
