Biografía breve
Jared Diamond, professor of geography at the University of California at Los Angeles ... began his scientific career in physiology and expanded into evolutionary biology and biogeography. [from Guns, Germs, and Steel (2005)]
JARED DIAMOND is Professor of Geography at the University of California, Los Angeles. Until recently he was Professor of Physiology at the UCLA School of Medicine. He is the author of The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?; Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the widely acclaimed Guns, Germs, and Steel: the Fates of Human Societies, which also is the winner of Britain's 1998 Rhone-Poulenc Science Book Prize.

Dr. Diamond is also the author of two other trade books: The Third Chimpanzee, which won The Los Angeles Times Book award for the best science book of 1992 and Britain's 1992 Rhone-Poulenc Science Book Prize; and Why is Sex Fun? (ScienceMasters Series).

Dr. Diamond is the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship ("Genius Award"); research prizes of the American Physiological Society, National Geographic Society, and Zoological Society of San Diego; and many teaching awards and endowed public lectureships. In addition, he has been elected a member of all three of the leading national scientific/academic honorary societies (National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Philosophical Society).

His field experience includes 17 expeditions to New Guinea and neighboring islands, to study ecology and evolution of birds; rediscovery of New Guinea's long-lost goldenfronted bowerbird; other field projects in North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia. As a conservationist he devised a comprehensive plan, almost all of which was subsequently implemented, for Indonesian New Guinea's national park system; numerous field projects for the Indonesian government and World Wildlife Fund; founding member of the board of the Society of Conservation Biology; member of the Board of Directors of World Wildlife Fund/USA.

¿Cómo fue la evolución de la humanidad? ¿Cuáles fueron los factores que influyeron en dicha evolución? ¿Por qué unos pueblos avanzaron hacia la civilización y otros quedaron estancados?

No hay una autoridad más preparada y competente que Jared Diamond, reconocido experto en el campo de la fisiología, para responder a estas y otras inquietantes preguntas. Con su amena y fascinante experiencia científica, Diamond analiza la desconcertante evolución que ha configurado la sexualidad de los seres humanos, tan diferente al resto de especies animales.

Jared Diamond culmina su trilogía con un sobrecogedor estudio de cómo las naciones más poderosas afrontan sus horas más oscuras. En Armas, gérmenes y acero y en Colapso, Jared Diamond ya revolucionó nuestra visión del auge y la caída de las civilizaciones. Ahora, el autor concluye su sensacional trilogía adentrándose en una dimensión psicológica que complementa el impresionante universo histórico, geográfico y económico recogido en su obra. El resultado es este revelador estudio comparativo de cómo seis países han sobrevivido en su historia reciente a crisis decisivas mediante un duro proceso de autoevaluación y transformación. Diamond identifica patrones en la superación de la adversidad y, dirigiendo su mirada hacia el futuro, plantea que quizás el mundo esté desperdiciando sus recursos y embarcándose en un viaje de conflicto político y declive. Una narración tan épica como irresistible.… (más)

this is a brilliantly written, passionate, whirlwind tour through 13,000 years of history on all the continents -a short history of everything about everybody. The origins of empires, religion, writing, crops, and guns are all here. By at last providing a convincing explanation for the differing developments of human societies on different continents, the book demolishes the grounds for racist theories of history. Its account of how the modern world was formed is full of lessons for our own future. After reading the first two pages, you won't be ablo tu put it down.… (más)
