9780029089255: Sick Societies: Challenging the Myth of Primitive Harmony

Edgerton challenges the notion that primitive societies were happy and healthy before they were corrupted and oppressed by colonialism. He surveys a range of ethnographic writings, and shows that many of these so-called innocent societies were cruel, confused and misled.
