In Book Reviews, Curated Resources, Historical Resources, Library by Steve Sliwa

This book is a thought-provoking collection of history, population biology, anthropology, and a variety of other fields. It tracks homo sapiens from a struggling and insignificant species through the cognitive, agricultural, and scientific phases of development. It talks about the importance of religions, nationalism, and economic systems. Interestingly, the role of capitalism was critical.
