Why has human history unfolded so differently across the globe?

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 Steelis a ground-breaking and humane work of popular science.
