This book answers the most obvious, the most important, yet the most difficult question about human history: why history unfolded so differently on different continents. Geography and biography, 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 one of the most important and humane works of popular science.

This book abandons the conventional distinctions between history and science. By focusing on what ancient peoples had in the way of land, animals and plants, Diamond sheds genuinely new light on the world's most explosive diversions.
