This review is from: The Human Web: A Birds-eye View of World History (Hardcover)
Strange how such an interesting ambition - to write a short history of the human universe - can result in a book that is not at all concise. It has disappointingly little fact and a lot of fiction that all seems based on the assumption that current American values are the high point of civilisation.
Culturally and intellectually, Jared Diamond and Marvin Harris ('Our Kind') are on a very different level.
