28. Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging by Sebastian Junger

In this short book Junger looks at the issue of PTSD in soldiers. Examining tribalism from historical, anthropological, and psychological angles he suggests that the high rates of PTSD in soldiers returning from war may be related to the fact that we are innately tribal while modern society is very individualistic. Junger always does an excellent job digging into the subjects he’s writing about and this book is no exception. I give it a 7 out of 10.
