The book also examines the animal origins of language, art, agriculture, smoking and drug use, and other apparently uniquely human attributes. The first step towards civilization is the move from nomadic hunter-gatherer to rooted agrarian society. In a desperate bid to support Johnny, Tracey acquires for him the concession in the diamond-rich seabed round the coral islands of Thunderbolt and Suicide off the savage South West African coast, and Johnny throws all his resources into the construction of a vessel that will recover the stones from the ocean floor and repair his fortune at last. Great discussion of science in the last half of the epilogue. Five dog night is an Australian phrase referring to a very cold night because you would need to use five dogs as blankets.

The Americas had difficulty adapting crops domesticated at one latitude for use at other latitudes and, in North America, adapting crops from one side of the Rocky Mountains to the other. Reason 4: continental differences in total population size. Kenges Rakishev, whose father-in-law is the former vice prime minister of Kazakhstan and a close ally of Kazakh dictator Nursultan Nazarbayev, runs the offshore firm. This allowed farming cultures to defeat hunter gatherer cultures by sheer force due to larger populations. This quote of the day image came up from my memories feed in Facebook and I needed to share it again after spending time with the fun Bedford folks this past weekend!

This, in turn, led to the spread of more agricultural societies across the globe. Domesticated animals differ in multiple ways from their wild ancestors. The combination of specialization and population growth leads to the accumulation of social and technological innovations which build on each other. Similarly, Africa was fragmented by its extreme variations in climate from north to south: crops and animals that flourished in one area never reached other areas where they could have flourished, because they could not survive the intervening environment. Johnny will not only be ruined by his liabilities, he will also be a laughing stock.

Diamond Hunter book

Diamond touches on why the dominant powers of the last years have been West European rather than East Asian especially Chinese. This is a defining part of the novel that gives the book a great deal of heart. That is, civilization is not created out of superior intelligence, but is the result of a chain of developments, each made possible by certain preconditions.

Geography[ edit ] Diamond also argues that geography shaped human migrationnot simply by making travel difficult particularly by latitudebut by how climates affect where domesticable animals can easily travel and where crops can ideally grow easily due to the sun.

The end of Chapter 18 shares multiple interesting examples of peoples who were largely similar genetically because of similar ancestors, but developed very different societies and technologies due to the their individual environments. Many were killed by infectious diseases such as smallpox and measles.

Biological relatives of the horse, including zebras and onagersproved untameable; and although African elephants can be tamed, it is very difficult to breed them in captivity; [2] [3] Diamond describes the small number of domesticated species 14 out of "candidates" as an instance of the Anna Karenina principle : many promising species have just one of several significant difficulties that prevent domestication.

Government and religion are two of the main reasons some societies overcame others. Reading Suggestions This is a list of authors, books, and concepts mentioned in Guns, Germs, and Steel, which might be useful for future reading.

There are SO many more quilts to share, so pour yourself a cup of your favorite and enjoy the show. Example of cultural evolution: the Moari of New Zealand were able to determine the most useful rocks and animals for domestication within a century of arriving.
