Guns, Germs and Steel Summary


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

The broadest pattern of human history consists of the differences that emerged prehistorically in rates of human development on different continents, and that led to today's inequalities. This book abandons the conventional distinctions between history and science. By focusing on what ancient peoples were endowed with in the way of land, animals and plants, and on the confrontations between less and more advanced peoples, Diamond sheds genuinely new light on the world's most explosive divisions.
