"This second edition of Historical Dictionary of New Zealand describes the many changes of the past decade while building on the solid foundations of a first edition that examined the country's long and lively history. It covers everything from relations between the Pakeha and the Maori to the country's environmental policies. The introduction provides a good starting point, and the chronology traces New Zealand's history from the earliest settlers to the present. The dictionary includes hundreds of entries on important people, places, events, and institutions, as well as significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects, and the bibliography points to further reading."--BOOK JACKET.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
