The Fierce People

by John J. Miller

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Napoleon Chagnon, author of Noble Savages: My Life among Two Dangerous Tribes–the Yanomamö and the Anthropologists. We discuss Chagnon’s groundbreaking research on violence among the indigenous people of South American, Rousseau’s concept of “noble savages,” and whether a true state of nature exists anywhere in the world today.
