Abstract:

This program examines humanity's basic drive to occupy and defend a territory and form a social hierarchy. From primitive settlements to modern cities, anthropologist Desmond Morris examines the evolution of the human animal's tribal lifestyle, the complexities of urban living and the methods that members of big-city "super-tribes" use to cope with the stresses of overcrowding, and the way in which status is reinforced through the media. The roots of urban violence and the social/territorial dynamics of the underworld are studied as well.
