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.
