In this "artful, informative, and delightful" (William H. ì McNeill, New York Review of Books) book, Jared Diamond ì convincingly argues that geographical and environmental factors ì shaped the modern world. Societies that had had a head start in ì food production advanced beyond the hunter-gatherer stage, and ì then developed religion --as well as nasty germs and potent ì weapons of war --and adventured on sea and land to conquer and ì decimate preliterate cultures. A major advance in our ì understanding of human societies, Guns, Germs, and Steel ì chronicles the way that the modern world came to be and ì stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history. ì Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Phi Beta Kappa Award in ì Science, the Rhone-Poulenc Prize, and the Commonwealth club of ì California's Gold Medal.
