Diamond contrasts modern society with that of traditional cultures, largely drawn from his time among the people of Papua New Guinea in this latest, wide-ranging big book on a big subject: how to live. Organized thematically, he considers (as summarized by Steven Mithen in his excellent review in the New York Review of Book) attitudes toward friends and strangers; systems of justice and the nature of warfare, child-rearing and treatment of the elderly; attitudes toward danger; religion; linguistic diversity; diet and health.
