Classics and History Expert - Ian Morris

He began his career as an archaeologist and historian of ancient Greece, studying early texts and excavating sites around the Mediterranean Sea, but in recent years he has moved toward larger-scale questions and an evolutionary approach to world history. He has written or edited more than eleven books. His book, Why the West Rules—For Now, asks how geography and natural resources have shaped the distribution of wealth and power around the world across the last 20,000 years and how they will shape our future.

Morris discussed this subject in a February 2012 lecture entitled "Why the West Rules—For Now. " The book was named one of 100 Notable Books of 2011 by the New York Times and as one of the best reads for 2011 by Nature. Victor Serge.
