Description
This is stunning tour de force on the differences between the human geography of the Americas before 1492 and that of Eurasia and Africa; coupled with an assessment of the ecological and human consequences of the conquest of the Americas by Europeans after 1492. It's brilliant. It sits comfortably alongside the excellent books by Charles Mann on this subject.
