Armas, Germenes Y Acero / Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies
Paperback - Spanish

Hace trece mil anos la evolucion de las distintas sociedades humanas comenzo a tomar rumbos diferentes. La domesticacion de los animales y el cultivo de plantas silvestres en China, Mesoamerica y otras zonas geograficas otorgaron una ventaja inicial a los habitantes de esas regiones.

Sin embargo, los origenes localizados de la agricultura y la ganaderia son solo parte de la explicacion de los diferentes destinos de los pueblos. Las sociedades que superaron esta fase de cazadores-recolectores se encontraron con mas posibilidades para desarrollar la escritura, la tecnologia o las estructuras politicas; ademas de sobrevivir a germenes nocivos y crear poderosas armas belicas.

En este libro, el profesor Jared Diamond demuestra que la diversidad cultural hunde sus raices en las diferencias geograficas, ecologicas y territoriales ligadas a cada caso concreto, y analiza como evoluciono la humanidad y por que unos pueblos avanzaron hacia la civilizacion mientras que otros se quedaron estancados.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Fascinating.... Lays a foundation for understanding human history.Bill Gates

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