Jared Diamond and his ignoble savages. The Fortnightly Review.

JARED DIAMOND HAS obtained a niche for himself as the go-to anthropologist for the green left in the same way that James Lovelock held the post of Gaia-science guru for the same folks until he decided nuclear power was a good thing. Anything you want to justify a return to the prelapsarian stone age of wandering fruit and veg gatherers dressed in rabbit skins, singing songs of ancient enchantment to their liberated children and living harmoniously with Mother Nature then Diamond’s your man.
