It's a good article, Kamran.  A much fuller study and analysis by 
Richard Lee is forthcoming, I understand; I'll send a link to the list 
when it is ready. Richard looks at the evidence for & against two these: 
that foraging societies are especially violence-prone, and that 
pre-agricultural humanity had more aggression than today's. Evidently, 
contemporary evidence is more direct than archeological; but as 
contemporary foraging societies are very few and not free of influence 
from neighbors, the evidence from them is tricky in a different way: 
there is a trade-off.  Richard earns our gratitude for conscientious 
examination of the mountains of evidence--- more than I imagined existed.
