I like the way that Diamond refers to his framework with every civilization studied. It helps with the consistency of the thesis and to make the study of each society more clear in my mind.One area confuses me and that is the point of hostility and this only in regard to the Maya so far. Please refer to the Chapter 5 thread for my reasons why.Mr. P. The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.The pain in hell has two sides.
