Jared Diamond, The rise and fall of the third chimpanzee. 1991
How the human species changed, within a short time, from just another species of big mammal
to a world conqueror;
and how we acquired the capacity
to reverse all that progress overnight
Diamond, Jared, Guns, Germs and Steel: A short
history of everybody for the last 13,000 years.
In this Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Jared Diamond argues that
both geography and the environment played major roles in
determining the shape of the modern world. This argument runs
counter to the usual theories that cite biology as the crucial factor.
Diamond claims that the cultures that were first able to domesticate
plants and animals were then able to develop writing skills, as well as
make advances in the creation of government, technology, weaponry,
and immunity to disease
