This is an in-depth review of the book A History of the Global Economy by Colin White. For those of you who liked Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse, this book is right up your alley. For those of you who are more radical this book covers similar grounds as a world-systems theory. For those who like anthropology beyond cultural relativism, this book addresses some similar topics as do V. Gordon Childe, Leslie White and Elman Service. It has brief criticisms of every chapter.
