I remember reading this in AP World History class. Basically, it's a book about a gorilla explaining a neo-tribalist argument to a human. Overall, it gives a pretty rosy view of going back to a hunter/gatherer existence, so if you wanted some balance to the author's arguement, you're not going to get it from "the student," who's only purpose is to be The Watson
. But if you want a more realistic view of tribalism, read Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe.
