Guns, Germs and Steel, by Jared Diamond
Why did Eurasians conquer Native Americans, Australians, and Africans, instead of the reverse? Diamond dismisses racially-based theories of human history by revealing the environmental factors responsible for history’s broadest patterns. For example, there were far more domesticable plants and animals in Euro-Asia than in Africa and Australia, and to have domesticated crops and herds means you can support larger populations, which means there is a division of labor to create a complex economy that leads to the production of guns and steel. Germs comes with the large populations. A work rich in dramatic revelations that challenges conventional wisdom.
