Guns, Germs and Steel: A Short History of Everbody For the Last 13000 Years
This book abandons the conventional distinctions between history and science. By focusing on what ancient peoples had in the way of land, animals and plants, Diamond sheds genuinely new light on the world’s most explosive diversions.
‘A book of big questions, and big answers’ Yuval Noah Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens
Why has human history unfolded so differently across the globe? And what can it teach us about our current crisis?
Jared Diamond puts the case that geography and biogeography, not race, moulded the contrasting fates of Europeans, Asians, Native Americans, sub-Saharan Africans, and aboriginal Australians.
An ambitious synthesis of history, biology, ecology and linguistics, Guns, Germs and Steel is a ground-breaking and humane work of popular science that can provide expert insight into our modern world.
