About Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging by Sebastian Junger:
Drawing on his experience as a journalist covering conflicts in Afghanistan and Sarajevo, Junger studied how war and great hardship bring people together for the common good. He speaks of combat soldiers returning home only to miss the tight bonds of their platoon, which can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder.
Based on additional research into history and social science, Tribe explores how much we can learn from tribal societies and their focus on loyalty, belonging, and sacrifice, in order to appreciate the power of connectedness in the modern world.
The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
