How has work shaped human civilisation?
br>Idle Hands charts a natural and cultural history of work, from the primordial age through the 'stone Age and into the digital era. Drawing on field work at the interface between hunter gatherer societies, simple agricultural societies and the industrialised world, and integrating new insights from epigenetics, ethology, genomics, social anthropology, economics and evolutionary theory, it challenges the way we think about work today - and shows why automation may be the key to unlocking a more sustainable future.
