'This is perhaps the only book I could recommend to almost anybody with an intelligent interest in human society. I read it on the plane from London to Tokyo with plenty of time to spare; if it were available at airport bookshops and people bought it on their travels, it could be a useful vehicle for increased understanding between peoples.'Stanley J. Ulijaszek, University of Oxford and St Cross College, Oxford, Journal of Biosocial Science (No. 40, 2008)
