A cutting and spectacular book. Of course, for cows, Harris speaks of India. Pigs apply to Middle Eastern religions as well as Papua New Guineans. Harris has approached various baffling customs, from the sacred cow to the potlatches and the hippies, with the assumption that, whatever they are, things in human civilizations serve a purpose; and since he thought to look, he found them. When discussing wars, Harris mentions several cultures but primarily focuses on the Yanomamo, relying on the work of Chagnon, and also the messiahs of the Jews in the Middle East.
