In Volume 1, The Birth of Humankind, a fictional Yuval invites us to take a ride on the wild side of history – accompanied by a whole host of globetrotting characters. Together, they cut through the noise of our information-deluged world, step back, and take a look at the really big picture: the entire history of the human species. At the heart of their explorations is a niggling question: how on Earth did an insignificant ape become the ruler of the planet, capable of splitting the atom, flying to the Moon, and manipulating the genetic code of life?

The graphic format offers readers a new intellectual and artistic exploration of the past. Human evolution is reimagined as a tacky reality TV show. The first encounter between Sapiens and Neanderthals is explored through the masterpieces of modern art. The extinction of the mammoths and saber-toothed tigers is retold as a “whodunit” movie. Come meet the gay Neanderthals, the all-powerful Doctor Fiction, and the world’s worst-ever serial killers – and find out why we are all trapped inside the dreams of dead people!

The second volume of the graphic adaptation of Yuval Noah Harari's global phenomenon and smash Sunday Times #1 bestseller, with gorgeous full-colour illustrations and a beautiful package - the perfect gift for the curious beings in your life

Twelve thousand years ago, we humans fell into a trap. Volume II of Sapiens: A Graphic History tells the story of how wheat took over the world; how an unlikely marriage between a god and a bureaucrat created the first empires; and how war, famine, disease and inequality became a part of the human condition.

Sound sombre? Not with this cast of entertaining characters, returning from Volume I to explore the Agricultural Revolution. Yuval, Zoe, Prof. Saraswati, Cindy and Bill (turned farmers), Detective Lopez, and Dr. Fiction - are all back to travel the length and breadth of human history. The cunning Mephisto shows them how to entrap humans, King Hammurabi lays down the law, and Confucius explains harmonious society. With guest appearances by Thomas Jefferson, Scarlet O'Hara and Ruth Bader Ginzburg.

And there's plenty more genre-bending to enjoy in this book. The origins of modern farming are introduced through Elizabethan tragedy, the changing fortunes of domesticated plants and animals are tracked in the columns of the Daily Business News, the story of urbanization is told as a travel brochure offering discount journeys to ancient Babylon and China, while the history of inequality is scouted out in a superhero detective story.

This graphic series is a radical, witty and colourful retelling of the story of humankind, adapted from the international bestseller Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, which has sold 18.5 Million copies in 60 languages worldwide. Volume II can be read as a standalone book or as a follow-up to Volume I, and is designed to captivate adults and young adults who don't usually engage with science and history. If you want to know why we are all trapped inside the dreams of dead people - this is your ideal reader.
