Samenvatting

Insightful' YUVAL NOAH HARARI 'Fascinating' SUNDAY TIMES 'Elegant and absorbing' FINANCIAL TIMES 'Profoundly moving' IRISH TIMES What can we learn from the Bushmen? If the success of a civilisation is measured by its endurance over time, then the Bushmen of the Kalahari are by far the most successful in human history. Anthropologist James Suzman spent twenty-five years in Southern Africa documenting their way of life and encounters with modern society, gathering invaluable lessons about work, wealth, happiness, equality and time.

Recensie(s)

This book has truth on every page and is filled with important insights that range from hunting and tracking to how we think about time, money, value or success. -- Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of THE HARMLESS PEOPLE and THE OLD WAY This beautiful book--part memoir, part ethnography--offers a window into the lives of one of the most enduring of human cultures ... If you have ever wondered how it might be to measure wealth not by material possessions but by the strength of social relations between people, read this book. -- Wade Davis, author of THE WAYFINDERS and INTO THE SILENCE [A] beautiful, heartfelt paean. AFFLUENCE WITHOUT ABUNDANCE is learned without being condescending, tender yet unsentimental. It is both a celebration of an ancient way of life and a lament for all that has been lost in our own headlong pursuit of the material. -- Peter Godwin, author of MUKIWA and WHEN A CROCODILE EATS THE SUN A spirited ethnography of the ancestral peoples of the Kalahari... A welcome contribution to a once-vibrant anthropological literature without many recent entries. Kirkus Reviews
