The Creation of Inequality
The Creation of Inequality How Our Prehistoric Ancestors Set the Stage for Monarchy, Slavery, and Empire By Flannery, Kent V. Book - 2012

On one level this was a disappointing book, on another level it is really very good, at least at establishing the universality of human behavior [creation of royalty, et cetera, everywhere!]. The scholars' premise sounds logical, but overall they perhaps spend too much time on cultural anthropology/archaeology, and not enough time proving their thesis.
