Chapter 8: "Peaceful Versus Warlike Societies in Pre-Columbian America: What do Archaeology and Anthropology Tell Us?"

The article contains a basic recounting of the Saharasia discovery, along with some new materials. As per the closing sentences:

"The debt of American society to the Indigenous Peoples of this land is large, and a more scientifically grounded appreciation of their culture -- which reveals the largest region of Planet Earth where the larger percentage of humans lived peacefully so late into the historical period -- can only make the world a better place."
