Note
"This book tackles difficult subjects, including historic and contemporary public discourse about race, religion, and social hierarchy, with the intent of encouraging open conversation based on science and critical thinking. Much research and thought have been put into presenting this subject matter, with the awareness that certain aspects of the presentation may prove challenging or unsettling for some audiences. Nevertheless, it is important to the authors to address pressing social and global issues such as those discussed within."--Verso.

Summary
In the second "Sapiens" volume, Yuval Noah Harari tells the story of how we took over the world; how an unlikely marriage between a god and a bureaucrat created the first empires; and how war, famine, disease, and inequality became a part of the human condition. The origins of modern farming are introduced through Elizabethan tragedy, the changing fortunes of domesticated plants and animals are tracked in the columns of the Daily Business News, and the story of urbanization is told as a travel brochure offering discount journeys to ancient Babylon and China.
