About this item
The most prestigious and eagerly anticipated lecture series of the year, The CBC Massey Lectures are being delivered in 2009 by acclaimed author and anthropologist Wade Davis. Described as a "rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet, and passionate defender of all of life's diversity," Davis is one of the most authoritative and well-respected cultural anthropologists in the field. In this fascinating work, he offers readers an engaging and insightful firsthand account of the environmental crises threatening indigenous cultures around the globe. An ardent defense of cultural preservation, the book celebrates the rich diversity of indigenous cultures and traditions while serving as a timely reminder of the dangers modernization and globalization pose to traditional ways of life. "The World Is Not Flat" is an enlightening look at vanishing cultures from one of the world's most distinguished anthropologists.
