Celebrities back new book on tribal peoples
A groundbreaking new book which challenges many assumptions about tribal peoples – including how they are viewed and their role in the world – will be published by Freeman Press on November 14.
‘Tribal peoples for tomorrow’s world’ is written as an introductory ‘guide’ by Survival’s Director Stephen Corry and draws on his unrivaled 40 years’ experience. With no other book covering the same ground, it is jargon-free and assumes no prior knowledge.
Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth says, ‘This book makes the case that we’ve far more to learn from tribal peoples than we have to teach them. It’s compelling stuff.’
Artist Damien Hirst agrees, ‘This book is a refreshingly original approach to who tribal peoples really are and the startling contribution they make.’
Stephen Corry has spent a lifetime promoting and popularizing tribal peoples’ rights. He leads the Survival International team which is building an enduring groundswell of public support in their defense.
‘Tribal peoples for tomorrow’s world’ is packed with intriguing and little-known facts including: the deadliness of raw manioc; the extraordinary number of sounds used by Bushmen; what Andaman tribes do with their breast milk; and tales of the sole survivor of a Brazilian tribe.
Other language editions are planned.
