AUTHOR

Hugh Brody

SUMMARY

Hugh Brody first encountered hunting peoples when he lived among the Inuit of the High Arctic, who instructed him not only how to speak but do & be Inuk-titut, "in the manner of an Inuk." Since then he has spent nearly three decades studying, learning from, crusading for, & thinking about hunter-gatherers, who survive at the margins of the vast, fertile lands occupied by farming peoples & their descendants. In material terms, the hunters have been all but vanquished, yet, in this profound & passionate book, Brody utterly dispels the notion that theirs is a lesser way of life. Drawing on his experiences among indigenous peoples, as well as on the work of linguists, historians, & fellow anthropologists, he reveals the outlooks & practices that distinguish the hunter from the farmer. Whereas the farmers are doomed to the geographical & spiritual restlessness embodied in the story of Genesis, Brody argues, the hunters' deep attachment to the place & ways of their ancestors stems from an enviable sense, distinctively expressed in thought, language, & behavior, that they are part of a web of relationships in the natural & spiritual worlds. Brody's aim, however, is not to elevate one mode of being over another; rather, it is to suggest that we might all move beyond the familiar dichotomies & become more fully human.Hugh Brody is the author of 'The Other Side of Eden: Hunters, Farmers, and the Shaping of the World' with ISBN 9780865476103 and ISBN 0865476101.
