The second volume of the graphic adaptation of Yuval Noah Harari's global phenomenon and smash Sunday Times 1 bestseller, with gorgeous full-colour illustrations and a beautiful package - the perfect gift for the curious beings in your life

When nomadic Homo sapiens settled to live in one place, they started working harder and harder. But why didn't they get a better life in return?

In The Pillars of Civilization, Yuval Noah Harari and his companions including Prof. Saraswati and Dr. Fiction travel the length and breadth of human history to investigate how the Agricultural Revolution changed society forever. Discover how wheat took over the world, how war, famine, disease and inequality became a part of the human condition, and why we might only have ourselves to blame.

The origins of modern farming are told through Elizabethan tragedy, the changing fortunes of domesticated plants and animals are tracked in the columns of the Daily Business News, and the history of inequality is revealed in a superhero detective story.

A radical, witty and colourful retelling of the story of humankind, adapted from Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Volume 2 can be read as a standalone or as a follow-up to Volume 1, The Birth of Humankind.
