David Wengrow, one of the world’s most astute archaeologists, co-wrote with David Graeber the ground-breaking best seller “The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity.” “This is not a book. This is an intellectual feast,” declared Nassim Nicolas Taleb. Now, Wengrow’s “What Makes Civilization: The Ancient Near East and the Future of the West” is being released in German translation. It is a vivid account of the ‘birth of civilization’ that helps us understand the present and future of our civilization.
Host: Wolfram Eilenberger
