The Indus valley civilization was basically an urban civilization and the people lived in well-planned and well-built towns, which were also the centers for trade. Conventionally, it is believed that these people reached Australia almost 60,000 years ago, and reached the Americas some 50,000 years ago. The spirit of compromise creeps into Christian action when the "second best" is formally permitted and even encouraged. Beat the game on the Chieftain difficulty level.

Instead of civilization being artificial it is a part of nature; all of a piece with the development of an embryo or the unfolding of a flower History's Golden Ages. Humans have had to adapt to, and may often have been the cause, of these changes (Waechter, 1990). In North America, modern humans (Cro-Magnons) probably influenced the extinction of many species such as the mastodon, saber-toothed tigers and giant beavers (Chiras, 1994). Fire may also have altered the environment quite dramatically especially in Australia where the practise was common in recent times (White, 1994) Civilizations Past & Present, Combined Volume, Books a la Carte Plus MyHistoryLab CourseCompass -- Access Card Package (12th Edition). This inter glacial period has also witnessed spectacular geophysical events, largely related to ice sheet effects.� The ice sheets of the Northern Hemisphere sequestered an immense volume of water, which lowered sea levels.� When the global ocean rose with melting ice sheets, portions of continents such as Japan and New Guinea became islands.� The land bridge of Beringia slipped beneath the seas and isolated the Western Hemisphere�s aboriginal peoples.� They were not �rediscovered� to any significant degree until Columbus sailed in 1492 .� Near my home in Washington State is one of many stark remnants of the prodigious floods that attended melting ice sheets. �When the obvious evidence of vast floods were linked with ice age melting nearly a century ago, the idea was initially dismissed as crazy speculation, as it conflicted with uniformitarian beliefs of the day .� It is now universally accepted as one of many events when ice dams broke and awesome floods scoured the Northern Hemisphere.� Catastrophists have long invoked celestial explanations for the demise of the mammoth while others have cited glacial floods.� Those buried mammoths that keep appearing as the Arctic melts due to global warming were probably killed in the innumerable floods that attended melting ice sheets, but that is a far cry from driving the species to extinction.� The mo st violent glacial event may have created a global climate change about 12 kya, and the resulting thousand year period is called the Younger Dryas .� The current ice age began in the North Atlantic, and when the Laurentide ice sheet melted, vast floods into the North Atlantic may have reversed Earth�s oceanic circulation and dramatically changed Earth�s climate systems.� If agriculture had developed by then, the Younger Dryas would have created epic famines, wars, and population displacements. �But because few humans were sedentary at that time, that did not happen.� However, that event may have been responsible for humanity�s next Epochal Event: the Domestication Revolution, which is the next chapter�s subject.� As can b e seen with bonobos, economics is the foundation of social organization.� Social animals are social because their survival chances increase when they combine their efforts.� All animal social behaviors are interpreted as strategies toward meeting life�s essential requirements .� How far has human behavior �risen� past those basics?� In this narrative of the journey of life on Earth, where can we draw the line of when the human line became �sentient�?� Are we sentient even now?� That question is not easily answered.� Bonobo females can be brutal in coercing males back in line with their social plan, and chewed-off fingers have been noted.� Although bonobo life was filled with sex and cooperation, social enforcement could be savage.� Hu nter-gatherer social organization is egalitarian, partly because when people carry their only possessions on their backs, there is little opportunity for economic inequality to gain political power.� However, hunter-gatherers have very strict and vigilantly enforced social norms with ancient roots that ensure that level economic and political playing field.� A successful hunter must share his kills with all, and anybody who tries to dominate the band immediately has a coalition formed against him (it is always a male, reflecting that ape heritage), putting him back in line.� If a m an gets too far out of line, there are two fatal punishments.� One is banishment from the band.� The life expectancy of a solitary hunter-gatherer is minimal; banishment is usually a death sentence.� The exile may try to join another band, but that is highly risky, partly because any man banished from his band is going to be suspect.� The second is capital punishment, and to avoid initiating a feud, the band will �hire� kin of the condemned to perform the execution. [585] � Studies of w arfare have shown that absolute population density has little influence on how warlike societies are. [586] � However, the proper way to analyze population density and conflict is probably not in absolute terms, but relative terms.� Hunter-gatherer bands slaughtered each other over access to resources such as waterholes, stone quarries, and salt deposits. [587] � Ancient states of the Fertile Crescent and Mediterranean fought over access to forests, arable lands, and low-energy transportation lanes (usually waterways), and no informed observer thinks that the USA would have invaded Iraq in 2003, after more than a decade of genocidal economic sanctions and helping to bankrupt its own economy by hosting a huge military presence in that region, if the USA was sitting atop enough high- EROI oil to power its economy for centuries.� It is the relative abundance of resources that supports a people�s means of production that largely determines how warlike they are going to be.� Scarcity leads to violence, whether it is a gang of chimps looking for a neighbor to murder or history�s richest and most powerful nation invading peoples half a planet away to steal their energy resources.� Some nonliterate societies do not engage in warfare.� They are a vanishingly small proportion of the world�s native societies, but almost without exception, they are not warlike because they are geographically isolated.� T he most important variable in predicting a society�s level of internal and external violence is male dominance.� Monkeys are matrilocal (matrilineal), and males leave their society of birth to mate, gorillas and chimps are patrilocal (patrilineal), where females leave their natal society to mate, and humans have both kinds of pre-state societies, along with some minor variations .� Patrilocal societies are run by gangs of related men, are by far the most violent, engage in the most warfare, and women are subjected to the most violence.� Patrilocal societies can also have harems or many �wives� for the alpha males. [588] � Patrilocal societies make up nearly 70% of the world�s native cultures that have been documented.� Neanderthals and australopiths appear to have been patrilocal .� The primary determinant of patrilocal or matrilocal residence in humans is the economic contribution of women.� In general, where gathering and horticulture brought in more calories than hunting, women had more influence and the society tended to become matrilocal.� Those relationships only hold for societies that are not economically centralized.� Wh en surplus redistribution appeared, men began to dominate, and the chiefdom was the first step toward state formation. [589] � Organized violence only began increasing as states began to form Contemporary's Amazing Century: Book One : 1900 to 1929.
