Power and Greed: A Short History of the World

Gigantes, Philippe

This text deals with the nature of human greed and the eternal quest for power that, in every era and every culture, has determined why world events happened as they did. The author takes the reader on a journey through time, introducing on the one hand the great rule makers for a just society, such as Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, and on the other, the rule-breakers, or the "Grand Acquisitors".
