Wilkes, John M.
In his book Guns, Germs, and Steel, Jared Diamond seeks to explain global inequality by examining environmental factors in prehistory. By examining these arguments through the use of supplemental works focusing on specific societies, their validity can be judged. By combining study of Guns, Germs, and Steel and these other works into a course, students will be able to examine root causes for global inequality.
