GENERALIZATIONS ABOUT THE ANTHROPOLOGICAL STUDY OF WAR AND PEACE WAR 1. Anthropologists have concentrated on warfare in prehistoric and "primitive" societies, that is, in societies which are pre-state (prior to civilization) and non-state (bands, tribes, chiefdoms). 2. Anthropologists have been divided into two schools of thought over whether "primitives" are warlike or peaceful, or even whether human nature in general is warlike or peaceful. 3. Recently, indigenous and other societies are no longer viewed as pristine isolates, but significantly influenced by the political economy of larger systems (regional, national, international, world). 4. More attention is being given to contemporary hot spots such as Bosnia, Burma, Colombia, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka. 5.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
