Author and anthropologist Richard L. Currier writes about contemporary society, human sexuality, paleoanthropology, primate social behavior, ancient civilizations, and the Greek Islands. He received his BA and PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley, and he taught anthropology at Berkeley, the University of Minnesota, and the State University of New York. Dr. Currier is the author of UNBOUND: How Eight Technologies Made Us Human, Transformed Society, and Brought Our World to the Brink, published in August of 2015 by Arcade Publishing of New York. UNBOUND is available in hardcover, eBook, and audiobook formats, and a paperback edition will be published in April of 2017. Richard is currently working on his next book, provisionally entitled THE DISHARMONIOUS SOCIETY: Human Nature in a Technological World, which explores the disconnect between the inherited human natures that are the product of our evolutionary history and the realities of daily life in contemporary society.
