A short history of mankind

Yuval Noah Harari, German

Product details

Man: Crown of creation or horror of the ecosystem? How have we, Homo Sapiens, managed to win the struggle of the six human species for survival?
Why did our ancestors, who were once hunter-gatherers, settle, farm, and found cities and kingdoms? Why did we begin to believe in gods, in nations, in human rights? Why do we trust in money, books and laws and submit to bureaucracy, timetables and consumption? And has all this made us happier over the millennia? A hundred thousand years ago, Homo sapiens was an insignificant animal that lived inconspicuously in a remote corner of the African continent. Our ancestors shared the planet with at least five other human species, and the role they played in the ecosystem was no greater than that of gorill.
