Descripción editorial

'A book of big questions, and big answers' Yuval Noah Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens

The twentieth anniversary edition of the classic Pulitzer prize-winning book, with a new afterword from the author.

Why has human history unfolded so differently across the globe?
And what can it teach us about our current crisis?

Jared Diamond puts the case that geography and biogeography, not race, moulded the contrasting fates of Europeans, Asians, Native Americans, sub-Saharan Africans, and aboriginal Australians.

An ambitious synthesis of history, biology, ecology and linguistics, Guns, Germs and Steel is a ground-breaking and humane work of popular science that can provide expert insight into our modern world.

'The most absorbing account on offer of the emergence of a world divided between have and have-nots' The Times

'A prodigious, convincing work' Observer

A book of remarkable scope' Nature
