Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies
Author: Diamond, Jared | Paperback
Artful, informative, and delightful.... There is nothing like a radically new angle of vision for bringing out unsuspected dimensions of a subject, and that is what Jared Diamond has done.--William H. McNeil
An ambitious, highly important book.--James Shreeve
A book of remarkable scope, a history of the world in less than 500 pages which succeeds admirably, where so many others have failed, in analyzing some of the basic workings of culture process.... One of the most important and readable works on the human past published in recent years.--Colin Renfrew
The scope and the explanatory power of this book are astounding.
