A Brief History of Humankind
Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Publisher: Harper Collins
View: 9799New York Times Bestseller A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become? Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

The result is a thought-provoking exploration of the increasing impact of alternative strategies on the lawyer-client relationship, as well as on the legal system itself.

The Corps' Most Progressive Tradition
Author: H. John Poole
Publisher: Posterity Press (NC)
View: 6329While recounting the exploits of the Marine Raiders of WWII, this book stumbles upon some rather interesting coincidences. Among them are the following: (1) the German Maneuver Warfare (MW) that the USMC doctrinally adopted in the late 1980's looks very much like Chinese Communist Mobile Warfare; (2) both 2nd and 4th Battalion Raiders were patterned after Mao's 8th Route Army; (3) Carlson's 2nd was for a while doing Chinese Mobile Warfare at the squad level on Guadalcanal; (4) Roosevelt's 4th was later to punch three-fourths of the way through a sophisticated bunker matrix without any supporting arms. Because the modern-day Marine Corps has yet to be able to practice MW at the squad level, all of this has tremendous significance. A slight variation to what Carlson had copied from the Chinese might make this finally possible. In search of this Chinese ingredient, this book takes the reader through an unparalleled look at several of WWII's most brutal battles, and then repeats the favor for Vietnam. There, the Raider-descended 4th Marines were to display a number of Maoist small-unit maneuvers. So too did the highly successful CAP village Marines. Those Americans who have since fought in Iraq or Afghanistan know the importance of such “distributive operations” to winning the lower-intensity conflicts of the 21st Century. Thus, all infantrymen and special operators of every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces will benefit from the read. With 111 illustrations, this book has what it takes to entertain.
