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! :p

The chapter on the last first contacts is fascinating.

Several years ago I read a fascinating book about the first contact between Europeans and the New Guinea highlands.

Looks like a good one -- I'll add it to my wishlist!
