Summary
An exploration of the fascinating connections between geography, technology and global human development. Hosted by author Jared Diamond, this series spans 13,000 years of struggle and conquest. From early social and agricultural innovations in "Out of Eden," to the role of weapons and disease in "Conquest," to the modern interplay of geography and resources in "Into the tropics," it's a gripping, sometimes controversial detective story revealing how human history may have been shaped by our access to guns, germs and steel
