Guns, Germs and Steel

A Short History of Everybody for the Last 13.000 Years. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize 1998 and of the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science 1997

'A book of big questions, and big answers' Yuval Noah Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens
WITH A NEW AFTERWORD FROM THE AUTHOR
Why has human history unfolded so differently across the globe?
In his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, 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 remains a ground-breaking and humane work of popular science.
Rezension
"Monumental and monumentally good" William Leith, 4 stars Scotsman

Zitat
"A prodigious, convincing work, conceived on a grand scale" Observer "The most absorbing account on offer of the emergence of a world divided between have and have-nots... Never before put together so coherently, with such a combination of expertise, charm and compassion" The Times "A book of remarkable scope... One of the most important and readable works on the human past" Nature "Diamond's sideways-on view of human development may well establish its author as one of the very few scientists to have changed the way we think about history" Sunday Telegraph "Fascinating, coherent, compassionate and completely accessible" Sunday Telegraph
