Pandora's Seed: Why the Hunter-Gatherer Holds the Key to Our Survival.

Wells, Spencer.

Picture of Pandora's Seed: Why the Hunter-Gatherer Holds the Key to Our Survival.
The author draws upon compelling anecdotes and personal narratives to investigate a crucial turning point for mankind, when ten thousand years ago we changed from being hunter-gatherers to becoming farmers. Wells argues that such a dramatic change in lifestyle had a cost that we are only now beginning to realise. Growing grain crops made humans more sedentary and made the planet more crowded. His account of human evolution is combined with an urgent call for global reform.
