This book is a bit elementary, and the ideas won’t be revolutionary to anyone with a passing interest in sociology or anthropology, but I still enjoyed the bird’s eye view of how various large themes shaped the development of human society.

I hated this book. I only finished it for my book club. 2 stars instead of 1 because I thought the constantly shifting perspective among the characters was an interesting way to demonstrate that each of us, ultimately, lives our whole lives in the country of others. But the plot was alternately boring and infuriating, and no plotlines are never resolved. It’s an interesting meditation on colonialism, I guess, but I would not recommend it.
