    Diego Rivera: The Maize Festival, (detail) Overall Impression: This is an interesting book written by a physiologist and evolutionary biologist, very broad in its scope, thought-provoking and challenging, for the most part refreshing in its outlook (definitely not Eurocentric!), but marred by an excess of political correctness and almost oblivious to the role of cultural differences.   There's speculation by the Bushmen that the government wants to move them out to open up the reserve to diamond mining. Maphorisa strongly denies this. Ms. MAPHORISA: And in the issue of diamonds.
