Title Hunting and the evolution of egalitarian societies: lessons from the Hadza
Date 2000
Description Political hierarchies are common in human societies but absent among many mobile hunter-gatherers. So egalitarian social organizations have been attributed to limits that foraging imposes on wealth accumulation. But male-dominance hierarchies characterize all the great apes, our nearest relatives. The absence of wealth is not enough to explain the absence of hierarchy.
