THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Origins by Lewis Dartnell stands comparison with Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens... A thrilling piece of Big History' James McConnachie, Sunday Times 'A sweeping, brilliant overview of the history not only of our species but of the world' Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads When we talk about human history, we focus on great leaders, mass migration and decisive wars. But how has the Earth itself determined our destiny? How has our planet made us? As a species we are shaped by our environment. Geological forces drove our evolution in East Africa; mountainous terrain led to the development of democracy in Greece; and today voting behaviour in the United States follows the bed of an ancient sea. The human story is the story of these forces, from plate tectonics and climate change, to atmospheric circulation and ocean currents. How are the Himalayas linked to the orbit of the Earth, and to the formation of the British Isles? By taking us billions of years into our planet's past, Professor Lewis Dartnell tells us the ultimate origin story. When we reach the point where history becomes science we see a vast web of connections that underwrites our modern world and helps us face the challenges of the future. From the cultivation of the first crops to the founding of modern states, Origins reveals the Earth's awesome impact on the shape of human civilizations.… (mais)

This book was a joy to read: it was engagingly written and felt securely anchored in the understanding of science and history. I don't think there was much I didn't already know something about already, but the book did an excellent job of showing those things in context, and from a new angle. I could have easily read for another 300 pages. ( )

Buen y ameno libro respecto a como la geología y el desarrollo de la tierra planteó y determinó parte del desarrollo de la humanidad. ( )

Interesting but read like a book of trivia. ( )

Gemengde gevoelens bij dit boek. Het bevat enkele interessante hoofdstukken over plaattektoniek, over oceaanstromingen, windstromen en andere geofyische fenomenen, en hoe die door de miljoenen jaren heen onze aarde gevormd hebben. Dartnell focust vooral op de invloed daarvan op de menselijke geschiedenis. En daar gaat hij naar mijn gevoelen regelmatig uit de bocht. Uiteraard heeft geografie een grote invloed uitgeoefend op historische fenomenen. “Cultural, social, economic and political influences are of course important – but planetary processes often form a deeper layer of explanation. While our planet’s make-up has not preordained everything, it can provide opportunities or constraints.” Dat klinkt redelijk, maar in zijn concrete uitwerking begaat Dartnell de fout daar een klassiek determinisme van te maken: ”geografie maakt de menselijke geschiedenis”, wordt het dan, en in zijn verhaal blijven sociale en culturele factoren gewoon buiten beeld. Meer dan daarover in mijn History-account op Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2871486285 ( )

Such a grand sweep of history and prehistory could be chaotic, but Dartnell’s story is beautifully written and organized. His infectious curiosity and enthusiasm tug the reader from page to page, synthesizing geology, oceanography, climatology, meteorology, geography, palaeontology, archaeology and political history in a manner that recalls Jared Diamond’s classic 1997 book Guns, Germs, and Steel.
