The historical importance of the Silk Road.
A really good exposition of this is by Peter Frankopan and is called The Silk Roads - A new history of the world.

Actually, you posted on my Facebook wall that you're looking forward to reading it so I'm taking that as a "yes."

Is Junger the same one who has identified the real cause of suicides by returning armed forces members as withdrawal of the strong tribal ties they'd had while enlisted? That's a novel explanation.

"Groupishness" received a lot of attention in Jonathan Haidt's last book, The Righteous Mind.

DWill, interesting theory that makes a lot of sense.

I listened to part of Tim Ferriss's podcast with him where he talks about that.

Book looks interesting, although I'm too unreliable for book commitments, I haven't even finished the podcast.

Hi Chris, yes, I will join the Tribe discussion since its themes are ones I find very interesting, as I mentioned in my post above about Jared Diamond. I am on holiday with my wife in Kakadu National Park. This morning we took a boat ride on Yellow Water, which is probably a bit like the Everglades. We saw four saltwater crocodiles and a lot of bird life. I have been out of internet contact. Tribe is brand new, and the Australian Kindle edition is only available from June 16, so I will start reading it then.
