Jared Diamond: The course of human history

anthropology > civilizations
A very interesting talk. The actual transcript starts here. This can be seen as a synopsis of Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel, one of the most profound books in anthropology and the rise of civilisation ever written in my, most humble, opinion.
Diamond, with all of this, destroys racist fantasies in the most definitive of ways.
