Guns, Germs and Steel
Here’s a question that we have all asked ourselves at one point or another: “Why did Europeans colonise the world instead of the world colonising Europeans?” How come the aborigines didn’t round up a fleet of ships and sail the oceans in search of new lands to inhabit? Racism, ignorance and certain scientific disciplines would like to propose that our genetic, physical or intellectual differences hold the answers to this question, but this couldn't be further from the truth. In Guns, Germs and Steel,a revolutionary book, Professor Jared Diamond investigates these and other questions about the history of humanity. He does so with a blend of curiosity and a wealth of sources from several disciplines, presenting them in a new and interesting way that takes the reader on an exciting journey through the history of mankind and its relationship with the planet.
