From the book: Guns Germs and Steel

THIS BOOK ATTEMPTS TO PROVIDE A SHORT HISTORY OF EVERYbody
for the last 13,000 years. The question motivating the book is: Why
did history unfold differently on different continents? In case this
question immediately makes you shudder at the thought that you are
about to read a racist treatise, you aren’t; as you will see, the answers
to the question don’t involve human racial differences at all. The book’s
emphasis is on the search for ultimate explanations, and on pushing back
the chain of historical causation as far as possible.

Most books that set out to recount world history concentrate on
histories of literate Eurasia and North African societies. Native societies
of other parts of the world—sub-Saharan Africa, the Americas, Island
Southeast Asia, Australia, New Guinea, the Pacific Islands—receive
only brief treatment, mainly as concerns what happened to them very
late in their history, after they were discovered and subjugated by western
Europeans. Even within Eurasia, much more space gets devoted to the
history of western Eurasia than of China, India, Japan, tropical
Southeast Asia, and other eastern Eurasian societies. History before
the emergence of writing around 3,000 B.C. also receives brief treatment,
although it constitutes 99.9% of the five-million-year history of the
human species.
