Guns, Germs,and Steel on PBS

Monday at 10 pm ET PBS will begin airing a 3 part series on Jared Diamond's 1997 Pulitzer winning novel Guns, Germs, and Steel which offered an interpretation of human history that finds that much of the inequity among world societies has arisen as a result of geography and ecology rather than any innate difference between the people of these societies. The PBS website for the show is a good way to get familiarized with the subject if you haven't yet read the book.
