Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Explaining what William McNeill called The Rise of the West has become the central problem in the study of global history. In Guns, Germs, and Steel Jared Diamond presents the biologist's answer: geography, demography, and ecological happenstance. Diamond evenhandedly reviews human history on every continent since the Ice Age at a rate that emphasizes only the broadest movements of peoples and ideas. Yet his survey is binocular: one eye has the rather distant vision of the evolutionary biologist, while the other eye--and his heart--belongs to the people of New Guinea, where he has done field work for more than 30 years.

Pressestimmen

"A book of remarkable scope, a history of the world in less than 500 pages which succeeds admirably, where so many others have failed, in analyzing some of the basic workings of culture process.... One of the most important and readable works on the human past."

Artful, imaginative, and delightful.... There is nothing like a radically new angle of vision for bringing out unsuspected dimensions of a subject, and that is what Jared Diamond has done. --William H. McNeil

An ambitious, highly important book. --James Shreeve

A book of remarkable scope, a history of the world in less than 500 pages which succeeds admirably, where so many others have failed, in analyzing some of the basic workings of culture process.... One of the most important and readable works on the human past published in recent years. --Colin Renfrew

The scope and the explanatory power of this book are astounding.

[Jared Diamond] is broadly erudite, writes in style that pleasantly expresses scientific concepts in vernacular American English, and deals almost exclusively in questions that should interest everyone concerned about how humanity has developed.... [He] has done us all a great favor by supplying a rock-solid alternative to the racist answer.... A wonderfully interesting book. --Alfred W. Crosby

Fascinating and extremely important.... [A] synopsis doesn't do credit to the immense subtlety of this book. --David Brown

Deserves the attention of anyone concerned with the history of mankind at its most fundamental level. It is an epochal work. Diamond has written a summary of human history that can be accounted, for the time being, as Darwinian in its authority. --Thomas M. Disch

No scientist brings more experience from the laboratory and field, none thinks more deeply about social issues or addresses them with greater clarity, than Jared Diamond as illustrated by ?Guns, Germs, and Steel.? In this remarkably readable book he shows how history and biology can enrich one another to produce a deeper understanding of the human condition. --Edward O. Wilson, Pellegrino University Professor, Harvard University

Serious, groundbreaking biological studies of human history only seem to come along once every generation or so.... Now [?Guns, Germs, and Steel?] must be added to their select number.... Diamond meshes technological mastery with historical sweep, anecdotal delight with broad conceptual vision, and command of sources with creative leaps. No finer work of its kind has been published this year, or for many past. --Martin Sieff

This is a brilliantly written, passionate, whirlwind tour through 13,000 years of history on all the continents a short history of everything about everybody.... By at last providing a convincing explanation for the differing developments of human societies on different continents, the book demolishes the grounds for racist theories of history.... After reading the first two pages, you won't be able to put it down. --Paul R. Ehrlich, Bing Professor of Population Studies, Stanford University
