Summary
"Eating one's own kind is completely natural behavior in thousands of species, including humans. Throughout history we have engaged in cannibalism for reasons relating to famine, burial rites, and medicinal remedies. Cannibalism has been used as a form of terrorism but also as the ultimate expression of filial piety ... Bill Schutt, a research associate at the American Museum of Natural History, takes us on a tour of the field, exploring ... new avenues of research"--Provided by publisher
