The author of landmark histories "Guns, Germs & Steel" and "Collapse" proposes a new theory of how and why some nations recover from trauma while others do not, looking at the complexities of the absorption of history in Finland, Japan, Chile, Indonesia, Germany, Australia and the United States.
Jared Diamond is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the seminal million-copy-bestseller Guns, Germs, and Steel , which was named one of Time magazine's best non-fiction books of all time, Collapse , a No. 1 international bestseller, and The World Until Yesterday , among other books. A professor of geography at UCLA and noted polymath, Diamond's work has been influential in the fields of anthropology, biology, ornithology, ecology and history, among others.
