As seen on PBS and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Jared Diamond, who traveled the globe for more than 30 years trying to answer one of the big questions in world history: Why is the world so unequal? The answers he found—that the societies that developed food production techniques first were also the first to develop writing, technology, and government—were simple, yet extraordinary. Our DVD weaves together anthropology and science with epic historical reenactments that bring his fascinating theories to life.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.
