Journalist Charles C. Mann writes a sequel to his best-seller 1491, this time with a book on the enormous changes caused by the Columbian Exchange. The transportation of humans, animals, crops and diseases changed dramatically the ecology and societies of Europe, America, Asia, Africa and Oceania, and that’s what this book examines. He also makes the point of how the post-Columbian world affects a wide range of current issues, such as immigration or cultural wars.
