About This Book
Why did Eurasians conquer, displace, or decimate Native Americans, Australians, and Africans, instead of the reverse? In this groundbreaking book, evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history by revealing the environmental factors actually responsible for history's broadest patterns. Here, at last, is a world history that really is a history of all the world's peoples, a unified narrative of human life even more intriguing and important than accounts of dinosaurs and glaciers.
JARED DIAMOND, professor of physiology at the UCLA School of Medicine, is the author of the bestselling and award-winning The Third Chimpanzee, about which Diane Ackerman has written: "Wonderful...Through insight and illumination, Jared Diamond conducts his fascinating study of our behavior and origins with a naturalist's eye and a philosopher's cunning." Jared Diamond began his scientific career in physiology and expanded into evolutionary biology and biogeography. He has published over 200 articles in Discover, Natural History, Nature, and Geo magazines.
