Nonfiction Book Group September 2015

Guns, germs, and steel: the fates of human societies by Jared Diamond — Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this brilliant work answers the question of why the peoples of certain continents succeeded in invading other continents and conquering or displacing their peoples. Until around 11,000 BC, all peoples were still Stone Age hunter/gatherers. At that point, a great divide occurred in the rates that human societies evolved. The people who gained a head start in producing food would collide with preliterate cultures, shaping the modern world through conquest, displacement, and genocide.
