Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Rifles, Germs, and Steel, is a brilliant work to answer the question of why the peoples of some continents have succeeded in invading other continents and conquering or displacing their peoples.This edition includes a new chapter on Japan and all-new illustrations from the TV seriesUp to almost 11,000 BC, all peoples still have the Stone Age hunter-gatherers.At this stage, a fracture has occurred in the tariffs that human societies have evolved.In Eurasia, the regions of the Americas and Africa, agriculture has become strong in the way of life when indigenous plants and wild animals were domesticated by prehistoric farmers and pastoralists.As Jared Diamond brilliantly reveals, people who have gained a head start in food production collide with preliterate cultures, shaping the modern world through conquest, displacement and genocide.Pathways that lead from scattered food centers to wide bands of settlement had much to do with climate and geographyBut how do the differences in societies ariseWhy were not indigenous Australians, Americans or Africans, those to colonize Europe?Pernicious demon diamond of racial theories of tracing societal differences of biological differencesIt gathers convincing evidence linking the germs of domesticated animals, germs that Eurasians then spread in the proportions of an epidemic in their travels of discovery.In its wake, Rifles, Germs and Steel embraces the rise of agriculture, technology, writing, government and religion, providing a unifying theory of human history, as intriguing as the stories of dinosaurs and glaciers.
