By: Jared Diamond
480 pages, 32 b/w plates, tabs, maps
&i;1998 Pulitzer Prize Winner for non-fiction&o;
An ambitious synthesis of history, biology, ecology and linguistics, this book is an enquiry into the origins of civilization and technological development. As argued by Diamond, the determining factors were the natural resources available and the uses to which they were put. A major work.
&i;`This is a brilliantly written, passionate, whirlwind tour through 13,000 years of history on all the continents - a short history of everything about everybody. The origins of empires, religion, writing, crops and guns are all here'&o;, Paul Ehrlich
