Book Review | Sapiens

Yuval Noah Harari is an Israeli Historian, Author and Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He was born on February 24, 1976 in Israel. He completed his PhD degree from University of Oxford in 2002. His most famous book is “Sapiens, A Brief History of Humankind”. Other books include “Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow”, and “21 Lessons for the 21st Century”.

The part three of the book is named as “Unification of Humankind”. In this part, the writer explains the factors which cause the unity of humans on Earth. Such as before the agricultural revolution humans were divided into different small towns around the globe. And one town in a specific area does not know the other parts of the world. They only know themselves. But as the time was slowly passing the humans began to explore the world and find new land and territories. This results in the unification of humankind. Three factors, according to the writer have, been the leading cause of the unity of humans around the globe. The first and most important is Money. With the invention of money, humans began to trust other human fellows, in this way there became a global Empire, which means that all the people in the world are under one and only government.

The other factor that results in the unification of humans is Imperialism . The emergence of large empires make the people of different cultures and countries come under a single centralized government. In such centralized government people of different areas share their cultural ideas and beliefs.

Then comes Religions. Religions play an important role in the unification of humankind. With the emergence of religions people began to believe in the same kind of things, for example believing in the one and only God. When all the people came to believe and unite on a single agenda, revolutions took place in history. Many religions in the Ancient world make changes in people’s lives. Some religions were local and were disappears early but others were global and they are still existing like Islam and Christianity.
