Wired for Culture
Since humans left Africa less than a hundred thousand years ago there has been a staggering explosion of cultures. What caused this blooming of diversity? Why are there so many mutually incomprehensible languages, even within small territories? This title shows how our facility for culture is the key to our success as a species.
Why Nations Fail
Why are some nations more prosperous than others? This title sets out to answer this question. It offers a pragmatic basis for the hope that at 'critical junctures' in history, those mired in poverty can be placed on the path to prosperity - with important consequences for our views on everything from the role of aid to the future of China.
