The author of Guns, Germs, and Steel is in big trouble. It appears that an account he wrote of an act of vengeance by his Papuan driver is grossly wrong, and he's up against a lawsuit for it. This blog post nicely reviews the issues of race and other hierarchy involved, and links to more details.

I learned about this from Jon Mandle at Crooked Timber. Comments there might be interesting or might just be boring trash; CT threads go either way.
