Thirty thousand years ago, the evolution of different human societies began to take a different direction.The domestication of animals and the cultivation of wild plants in China, Central America and other geographical areas gave an initial advantage to the defenders of the inhabitants of these regions.However, the localized origins of agriculture and cattle ranching are only part of the explanation of the different destinations of the villages.The societies that have overcome this phase of hunter-gatherers have found themselves with more possibilities to develop writing, technology or political structures, as well as to survive harmful germs and create powerful weapons of war.In this book, Professor Jared Diamond demonstrates that cultural diversity is rooted in the geographical, ecological and territorial differences linked to each specific case, and analyzes how humanity evolved and why some peoples advanced towards civilization while others remained stagnant.DESCRIPTION in ENGLISH “FascinatingEstablishes the basis for understanding human history”Bill Gates In this “clever, informative and pleasant” (William HMcNeill, New York Review of Books) book, Jared Diamond convincingly shows that geographical and environmental factors shaped the modern worldSocieties that had had a head start in advanced food production beyond the hunter-gatherer scene, and then developed religion, as well as evil germs and powerful weapons of war — and traveled the seas and lands to conquer and decimate preliterate culturesA major advance in our understanding of human societies, Rifles, Germs, and Steel chronicles how the modern world was born and incredibly dismantled based on the race theories of human historyWinner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Phi Beta Kappa, Science Prize, Rhône-Poulenc Region and the Commonwealth Club of California Gold Medal Prize
