Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies. “Fascinating … Lays a foundation for understanding human history.” Bill Gates. G,G, and S won the Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction in 1998. Diamond traveled the globe for 30 years trying to answer the biggest question in world history. Why is the world so unequal? Diamond argues that the gaps in power and technology between human societies originate from environmental differences. Eurasian civilizations have survived and conquered others but not from intellectual, moral, or inherent genetic superiority.

Our library system has about 15 copies and 5 copies of an excellent National Geographic  DVD. You can buy GG and S used at Amazon for 1¢ plus shipping.
