One of the hot new books on the subject (which just arrived on my doorstep from Amazon.com) is Ara Norenzayan's Big Gods: How religion transformed cooperation and conflict. Have only just glanced at it, but it might give you a sense of how the Neolithic to Bronze ages changed (hunter-gatherer) humanity.
Thank you, Jane. I will consider the book. But, from the quote immediately above, this text, however interesting, was obviously not the source of your previous claim. So, again, could/would you cite two or three example supporting your claim concerning "the 'covenant' which all Big Gods (across the board in the ancient world) made with the people they shepherded"?
Thanks in advance.
