Last-minute stocking stuffer idea from anthropology works

Stretchable to fit the right book, or DVD.
Stretchable to fit the right book, or DVD.

If you still need the perfect holiday gift for someone on your A-list, go to your local bookstore and get a copy of Sebastian Junger‘s book, War. Junger has a B.A. in cultural anthropology, and just take a look at what he’s done with it.

The book may not fit easily in every stocking due to its large size (bigger than a candy bar) and its hugely thought-provoking contents. But maybe it’s time to stretch the stocking and our hearts and minds.

Or, perhaps your giftees would prefer a DVD. If so, you can buy the film version, Restrepo, from Nat Geo.

And, in case you missed it, read AW’s coverage of the film.
