Today I am grateful to Jared Diamond, the author of Guns, Germs, and Steel. It is a fascinating book, providing an account of how some cultures became “advanced” while others were left behind and became conquered and often wiped out by the said guns, germs and steel. I juts wish Jared Diamond acknowledged Karl Marx and his theory more in his book, as the economic and political sequence of development that Diamond presents is taken directly from Marx.
