Then this PBS documentary is definately for you. I love this sort of thing and I really dig the kinds of questions that get addressed. Such as:
- Why were Europeans the ones to conquer so much of our planet?
- Why didn’t the Chinese, or the Inca, become masters of the globe instead?
- Why did cities first evolve in the Middle East?
- Why did farming never emerge in Australia?
- And why are the tropics now the capital of global poverty?
Really interesting stuff.
