The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?

"Extraordinary in erudition and originality.” The New York Times Book Review

“Diamond’s most influential gift may be his ability to write… in ways that don’t just educate and provoke, but entertain.” The Seattle Times


In his new book, The World Until Yesterday, Jared Diamond, the Pulitzer Prize-winning and mega-best-selling author of Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse, takes us on a mesmerizing journey into our rapidly vanishing past. Drawing on his fieldwork in New Guinea as well as evidence from Inuit, Amazonian and other cultures, Diamond explores how traditional peoples approach universal problems – from child rearing and elder care to dispute resolution – and discovers that we have much to learn from these cultures.
