Putin’s invasion of Ukraine
Putin’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine fills me with horror and sadness. On two occasions, before and after the end of the Soviet Union, I spent time staying in most regions of Ukraine to research Perestroika Christi and Darkness at Dawn (the latter about a Russian attempt to take back control of the independent Ukraine). Ukrainians are a lovely people who provided so much help in my research. Putin should be indicted for war crimes.

Some reviews from German edition
“John Hands is a knowledgeable outsider driven by a love of pure science… Cosmosapiens is studded with important thoughts and interesting details.” Michael Lange, Deutschlandfunk Kultur
“A grandiose work about natural and scientific history. The Englishman, whose work has won many awards, hardly misses anything.” Alex Dengler, Denglers Buchkritic
“Innovative, informative and exciting to read!” Kultbote
“Provides a great overview over human evolution.” Kieler Nachrichten
“The answer to the question ‘What are we?’ for Hands, is that we alone are the unfinished, reflective product of an accelerating cosmic process characterized by collaboration, increasing complexity and convergence, and that our future evolution lies in our hands.” Wolfgang Taus, Wiener Zeitung
