In Praise of Nepotism: A Natural History
Adam Bellow (au)
Nepotism, the favored treatment of one’s relatives, is considered in this country to be antidemocratic & almost un-American. Nepotism offends our sense of fair play & our meritocratic creed that we are supposed to earn what we get -- not have it handed to us. Here, Bellow shows how nepotism is rooted in our very biological nature, as the glue that binds human societies for most of history. Surveys the natural history of nepotism from its evolutionary origins to its practice in primitive tribes, clans, & kingdoms to its role in the great societies of the world -- the ancient Chinese Greeks, Romans, Europe in the Middle Ages & the Renaissance, & the democratic & capitalistic societies of the past two centuries.
