IMHO: Guns, Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies

Presented by The Arts House

LITERARY ARTS

 

Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction, Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs and Steel argues against colonial notions of Eurasian hegemony based on intellectual, moral or genetic superiority. Instead he explores how gaps in power and technology between human societies originated primarily in environmental differences and the influence of geography on societies and cultures.
