              A bold retelling of the entire human story from one of the world's pre-eminent thinkers What causes living standards to rise? Why are some countries so much richer than others? How might all humans thrive and survive? In The Journey of Humanity, Oded Galor offers a revelatory exp...lanation of how humanity escaped a life of subsistence poverty and began to enjoy previously unthinkable wealth and longevity. It shows why this process took place so much earlier and faster in some regions while it is only just taking place in others, and explains why so many of our efforts to improve lives have failed and how they might succeed. As humanity faces its greatest ever test, this book of urgent truths speaks across the political divide to arrive at universal lessons that are both hopeful and profound, revealing the keys not only to our species' thriving but to our survival.

              A landmark account of our journey from the dawn of human existence to the present - with vital lessons for our future. What are the keys to human progress? In the last two hundred years, stunning advances in health, wealth and lifespan have fundamentally transformed the experienc...e of being human, at least for some. But this was no accident of history. Drawing on a lifetime's investigation, Oded Galor identifies the universal forces behind this change, and so unlocks the mystery of human development. Galor's breakthrough vision upends many assumptions. The game-changing revolution of recent centuries was not industrialisation but mass education; not the era of child labour but the end of it. New technology can enhance living standards - but it has done so only by reducing family size and spurring greater gender equality. Meanwhile, differing levels of diversity, stemming from patterns of human migration tens of thousands of years ago, have been as powerful in determining the fate of nations as colonialism or geography. How did Europe soar ahead of previously more advanced civilisations such as China and the Ottoman Empire? Why have workers' revolutions succeeded in agricultural but not industrialised nations? How have soil types affected gender relations and coast lines entrepreneurialism? Why are Bolivia's challenges the opposite of Ethiopia's? Is continued growth compatible with tackling the climate crisis? Making astounding connections across continents and millennia, The Journey of Humanity answers all these questions and more in a bold and captivating narrative that reframes our understanding of human history. Its transformative and ultimately hopeful vision contains the keys not only to the thriving of our species but to our survival.
