Diamond, Jared
$30.00

Guns, Germs and Steel answers the most obvious, the most important, yet the most difficult question about human history: why history unfolded so differently on different continents. 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 one of the most important and humane works of popular science.

About the Author:  Jared Diamond is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel, which was named one of TIME‘s best non-fiction books of all time, the number one international bestseller Collapse and most recently The World Until Yesterday.  A professor of geography at UCLA and noted polymath, Diamond’s work has been influential in the fields of anthropology, biology, ornithology, ecology and history, among others.
