Product Details


“Mr. Diamond…is a lucid writer with an ability to make arcane scientific concepts readiily accesible to the lay reader, and his case studies of failed cultures are never less than compelling.” —The New York Times

“…Collapse is a magisterial effort packed with insight and written with clarity and enthusiasm.” —Businessweek

Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse represent one of the most significant projects embarked upon by any intellectual of our generation. They are magnificent books: extraordinary in erudition and originality, compelling in their ability to relate the digitized pandemonium of the present to the hushed agrarian sunrises of the far past. I read both thinking what literature might be like if every author knew so much, wrote so clearly and formed arguments with such care.” —Gregg Easterbrook, The New York Times Book Review
