This is an interesting section...the intro to the section is essentially the thesis for Guns, Germs & Steel, if I understand it correctly (I have, but haven't read GGS). So it may be a simplified version of what some of you have already read...so let's discuss it, while there's still time left in our quarter! The chapter on the last first contacts is fascinating. ...
