Clutching Cargo

od stuart.weibel (Publikoval uživatel WorldCat 2006-02-22) Výborné Trvalý odkaz
Why do westerners have so much cargo? That is the question, asked by a New Guinea tribesman, that motivated the author to pull together a lifetime of insight in this explanation of the march of human history. The title captures the main themes.The book earned a Pulitzer Prize and long print runs for...

schema:description"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. A major advance in our understanding of human societies, Guns, Germs, and Steel chronicles the way that the modern world, and its inequalities, came to be. It is a work rich in dramatic revelations that will fascinate readers even as it challenges conventional wisdom."@en
