Tribe (2016) surveys the historical landscape and delves into psychological depths to discover what it takes for us to feel at home in the world. Author Sebastian Junger offers a disturbing response, based on a plethora of data from different disciplines: it is frequently in the middle of turmoil and violence that we create our greatest feeling of belonging. Extreme peril brings people together and exposes the feeling of community that is sadly lacking in ordinary life, from the Blitz to American Marines serving in Afghanistan.
