Just the labor required to assemble so vast a collection of facts is daunting...Yet it is not simply a masterful compendium of facts and quotations. It is the achievement of penetrating intelligence with a broad, firm grasp of the world, imparting to the narrative a clear direction and a strong purpose. -- Robert L. Carneiro, from the forewordVom Verlag:
Combining history, archaeology, sociology, political science, and agricultural studies, Y=Arctg X: The Hyperbola of the World Order presents a theory claiming that any political system with a firm agricultural foundation is pre-destined to reach political unity and turn this state into the norm. Using the circumscription theory-the idea that the phenomenon of political unification was most explicit in areas of the world where agricultural land was in short supply- and exhaustive historical evidence, this timely work proposes the emergence of a single world state.
