Item description for The Origin of Human Social Institutions (Proceedings of the British Academy) by British Academy & W. G. Runciman...
These papers bring an interdisciplinary approach to bear on what is arguably the central question in the study of human social evolution: how did the simple hunting and foraging bands of the Upper Palaeolithic evolve into the institutionally complex societies of the so-called Neolithic Revolution? The contributors to this volume are leading experts from the fields of archaeology, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and game theory all of whom share a common evolutionary perspective.
