History. Sociology. Military. Nonfiction. HTML:We have a strong instinct to belong to small groups defined by clear purpose and understanding??"tribes." This tribal connection has been largely lost in modern society, but regaining it may be the key to our psychological survival.
Decades before the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin lamented that English settlers were constantly fleeing over to the Indians-but Indians almost never did the same. Tribal society has been exerting an almost gravitational pull on Westerners for hundreds of years, and the reason lies deep in our evolutionary past as a communal species. The most recent example of that attraction is combat veterans who come home to find themselves missing the incredibly intimate bonds of platoon life. The loss of closeness that comes at the end of deployment may explain the high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by military veterans today.
Combining history, psychology, and anthropology, Tribe explores what we can learn from tribal societies about loyalty, belonging, and the eternal human quest for meaning. It explains the irony that-for many veterans as well as civilians-war feels better than peace, adversity can turn out to be a blessing, and disasters are sometimes remembered more fondly than weddings or tropical vacations. Tribe explains why we are stronger when we come together, and how that can be achieved even in today's divided wor

So much to unpack here. I want to believe so much of Junger’s analysis, to embrace his rejection of western society. But his embrace of a seemingly traumaless war culture stretches my credulity passed the breaking point. ( )

Quite short, and makes its point well. I do think that he focuses a bit too much on war and aggression as the primary ways to create social cohesion, but I think that makes sense given that rallying after attacks is one of the few ways that we've experienced large-scale social cohesion recently. I fervently hope that it's possible to achieve similar effects, at least in small communities, without that. I've been working toward that within my own community with somewhat mixed results so far, but intend to continue trying. ( )

Nostalgia is a dangerous thing. By definition, nostalgia ignores all the yucky realities and retains all the unreasonably bloated ease, simplicity, and pleasure of a past time. Tribe is well-intentioned and makes some damn good points. I really loved it for a few chapters. But it ultimately got so lost in idealizing institutions and groups that had plenty of downsides, I was no longer swayed. ( )

In this little book, Junger deftly summarizes a lot of themes about what humans need, how they cope, and how our modern world fails to acknowledge and/or provide them: psychological, sociological, political.

It's in no way unfair, he gives modernity props where they're due. It's just that, like all human endeavors, it's imperfect and because of its pace, we've gone down certain roads much more quickly than we can adapt to (culturally, but obviously evolutionarily too) and lost sight of how to be, for lack of a better way to put it, human to one another.

As the subtitle hints, he focuses on those returning home, which in this day and age, frequently means soldiers but also includes, for example, Peace Corps volunteers. However, the issues raised apply more broadly and anyone who cares about our modern discontents should take a couple hours to read this. ( )

Short book, sort of a meandering essay about our social lives and especially about war and what it tells us about ourselves and how we live. I thought I wouldn’t like it, because it quotes a lot of social science without even pretending to be a scientific examination of the issues. But I liked almost everything he said, and I liked the way he said it.

It’s also interesting, so much has been written lately about the evils of tribalism, and I tend to agree with a lot of that. But he is concentrating on the good aspects of tribalism, without discounting the fact that there are many awful aspects at the same time. ( )

Despite its occasionally despairing tone, Tribe is a stirring clarion call for a return to solidarity. In advocating a public, shared confrontation with the psychic scars of war, Junger aims to stop trauma burning a hole through individual veterans. Such a collective catharsis might also be our best hope of healing the wounds modern society has inflicted on itself.

Junger argues persuasively that postcombat psychological problems must be understood as a problem of reintegrating to society on such terms, at least as much as they are due to the trauma of war. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a medical term for a cultural problem: the basic impossibility of digesting the experience of combat as an isolated individual among other isolated individuals, each devoted to pursuing his or her private interests. There is no tribe. To risk one’s life for the common good is to declare oneself outside this cultural logic of acquisitive individualism; the veteran is an outsider to us by definition, and no amount of yellow ribbons can change that fact.

Mr. Junger’s premise is simple: Modern civilization may be swell, giving us unimaginable autonomy and material bounty. But it has also deprived us of the psychologically invaluable sense of community and interdependence that we hominids enjoyed for millions of years. It is only during moments of great adversity that we come together and enjoy that kind of fellowship — which may explain why, paradoxically, we thrive during those moments. (In the six months after Sept. 11, Mr. Junger writes, the murder rate in New York dropped by 40 percent, and the suicide rate by 20 percent.)

Perhaps the single most startling fact about America is that, alone among the modern nations that have become world powers, it did so while butted up agains three thousand miles of howling wilderness populated by Stone-Age tribes.
