Pulitzer-Winner Jared Diamond (Guns, Germs, and Steel) Discusses New Book
Jared Diamond, owner/operator of one of the world's most brilliant brains, lets you inside his head when he sits down for a conversation with David Pescovitz (Editor, Boing, Boing). Though most famous for his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Guns, Germs, and Steel, Diamond has been an expert on several subjects during his long career as a scientist, scholar and writer. Graduating with a PhD from Cambridge, he first became an expert on the gall bladder. From bladders, he soon moved onto birds, particularly exotic ones in Papua New Guinea. And that interest led to his work in environmental geography ... and finally to cultural anthropology, a field which he transformed with books like The Third Chimpanzee and Collapse. Now Diamond draws on decades of fieldwork for his latest book, The World Until Yesterday, in which he asks what people in developed nations might have to learn from "traditional" societies.
