CLIO’S MUSE – A History Reading Club

The reading selection for April is Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond.
Jared Diamond convincingly argues that geographical and environmental factors shaped the modern world. Societies that 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.
