Men in Groups
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe links between males in groups Tiger describes derived from our evolution as hunters/gatherers. They extend through many other primate species and also across diverse cultures. Male bonding characteries human groups as varied as the Vatican Council, the New York Yankees, the Elks and Masons and the secret societies of Sierra Leone and Kenya. The power of Tigers book is its identification of powerful links between men as well as the impact of females and families on essentially male groups. Men in Groups remains a measured and responsible but intrepid inspection of a major aspect of human social organiation and personal behavior. The book was controversial when it first appeared, and often foolishly and unduly scorned. It remains a fundamental contribution to the emerging synthesis between the social and natural sciences.
