Reviews of Guns, Germs and Steel (1997) and related work

Guns, Germs and Steel (1997)

Jared Diamond (writer).

Diamond’s attempt to explain the major features of human history—particularly European hegemony—using geographical rather than cultural or racial factors.

A strong transdisciplinary effort for a general audience.

Guns, Germs, and Steel (2005) IMDb

Oddly cautious, with some dramatization, not all of it relevant. A decent substitute if you don’t want the interesting details.
