How did Homo sapiens evolve from savannah-dwelling primates to become the dominant force on the planet?

This provocative and insightful narrative tackles human development through a framework of unorthodox revolutions: the Cognitive, the Agricultural, and the Scientific. The author integrates history and science to reconsider accepted accounts of human existence and connect past developments to contemporary concerns. Issues addressed range from the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to the rise of empires. Also included are cogent projections about the future of humankind.
