Poverty & Inequality

Prof. Susan L. Brown addresses the topic of women and minorities through a historical and anthropological overview of human history. She traces the evolution of human society and sociability from the beginning of the species, through hunter-gatherers, early agriculture, the emergence of the state, to the present day. Through this history, she shows how human society evolved from egalitarian to more unequal societies, and how markets and globalization help the plight of disadvantaged groups.
