Our Review

This excellent work of Anthropology – or, rather, “Culturology,” as the author would have it in this particular study – offers a unique paradigm that may be applied to any culture – from the simplest kinship-based society to the most complex civilization – to understand what determines and what conditions its being and its evolution. It offers a wonderful key to understanding the North and the South, and their respective evolutions that led to a terrible war.
