Product description

Review

An ambitious, highly important book.--James Shreeve

A book of remarkable scope, a history of the world in less than 500 pages which succeeds admirably, where so many others have failed, in analyzing some of the basic workings of culture process.... One of the most important and readable works on the human past published in recent years.--Colin Renfrew

[Diamond] is broadly erudite, writes in a style that pleasantly expresses scientific concepts in vernacular American English, and deals almost exclusively in questions that should interest everyone concerned about how humanity has developed. . . . [He] has done us all a great favor by supplying a rock-solid alternative to the racist answer. . . . A wonderfully interesting book.--Alfred W. Crosby

An epochal work. Diamond has written a summary of human history that can be accounted, for the time being, as Darwinian in its authority.--Thomas M. Disch

Artful, informative, and delightful.... There is nothing like a radically new angle of vision for bringing out unsuspected dimensions of a subject, and that is what Jared Diamond has done.--William H. McNeil

The scope and the explanatory power of this book are astounding.
