About the Author

Yuval Noah Harari (Author)
Prof Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens- A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in sixty languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over nine months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus- A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as 'even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens'. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, was a Number One Bestseller and was described by Bill Gates as 'fascinating' and 'crucial'. Harari worked closely with renowned comics illustrator Daniel Casanave and co-writer David Vandermeulen to create his latest book, an adaptation of his first bestseller, Sapiens Graphic Novel- Volume 1.

Review

A skillfully entertaining education.....Throughout, the authors seek to present a concise rendering of the full march of humankind and point out elements that are fictionalized, misrepresented, or exaggerated--and show how those elements have shaped human behavior, norms, and mores. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 March 2022
I would like to start off by saying I am a huge fan. I have purchased three of the main books and two of the illustrated books. So if memory serves me right I have read all the books. And it has been a great pleasure .

Regarding this book, I appreciate the efforts taken to deal with hierarchies, Slavery, racism and discrimination. However I feel the arguments proposed regarding slavery and how they bolstered hierarchies are some what halfbaked.

In a nutshell the three arguments are. Europeans established the transatlantic slave trade because Arabs and Africans were participating in the slavery already. Since they were participating in the slavery already it was (Convenient) not the word he used, to follow suit for economic prosperity.
The second argument which bolsters the first argument is that, European explorers, so-called explorers had already established safe navigable routes. So It follows that the path was laid out as it was closer to transport African slaves from the coast of Africa to New lands in Brazil and the Americas.
The last argument states that, Africans had proven immune to tropical diseases, So (conveniently) not the word used, would prove to be the suitable tools for their new Prosperous nations.

Now I don’t know whether this was a objective fact or subjective opinion, or some what in the middle as the previous chapter myths of men introduced a new keyword - intersubjective reality. If so, In conclusion why we have slavery and racism is because of fiction – stories that white Europeans created. I feel this is below satisfactory to say the very least as an argument.
