Guns, Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond

Guns, Germs, and Steel presents an explanation of the development of societies based on situations of geography and environment rather than social factors. Arguing that the people who developed agricultural societies had a developmental advantage over those that remained hunter/gatherers, Jared Diamond presents intriguing facts to support his theories. Offering a fresh take on the evolution of societies, culture and community this Pulitzer Prize-winning book provides a new perspective on our world.
