HASH(0x9c4bbe7c) out of 5 stars interesting, informative, yet overly general read about agriculture May 31 2007
By Matthew Snope - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The title of this book is misleading: banditry is not really discussed, and Colin Fudge's views aren't radically different from the traditional, conventional folk understanding of early agriculture. What he does is make some interesting insights into humans' (reluctant) shift to agriculture, and plays with the historical timeline a bit. He challenges some assumptions and clarifies the blurry beginnings of human farming. The book is interesting and there are many good points and random facts. It does a good job of creating large brushstrokes painting the picture of early agriculture. However, the language is too general, and due to the book's brevity, I failed to get vivid mental images of what is being described. His argument is valid and clearly expressed, but it lacks support and owes itself, as he admits, to conversations he had with thinkers in the field of ecology-anthropology-archeology-etc. This book is a good starting point for a cursory discussion, but lacks the depth to truly support and capture the point he is trying to make. (As is a problem with much philosophy, the language is too broad and the assertions too sweeping.) It would be interesting to read a text challenging Colin's book.
