While some people theorize that tribal cultures were much better off before westerners encroached on their territories, others view the ‘white man’s’ influence as critical for native peoples’ survival. In Sick Societies: Challenging the Myth of Primitive Harmony, an anthropologist takes a before-and-after look at such aspects as physical, mental and emotional health, poverty and criminal behaviour in aboriginal populations and in the developing worlds.
