When materials are returned, libraries quarantine them before checkin to protect staff and patrons. Items that you returned may still display on your account, but libraries apply amnesty for the quarantine period for any fines that accrue. Please contact your local library for more information about returns, holds, current services, pickup options, and hours.

Sapiens a brief history of humankind

Image of item
CD Audiobook

Retail edition.

"One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? Bold, wide-ranging, and provocative, Sapiens integrates history and science to challenge everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our heritage ... and our future" --
