Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond
Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

Josh Milthorpe, January 1, 2010

Through concrete examples drawn from diverse human societies both ancient and modern, "Collapse" constructs a framework to help us explore the most critical question facing humanity: what causes human societies to fail? Instead of doomsday predictions, Diamond offers a thoughtful contribution that - hopefully - will help our globalised modern society to avoid the pitfalls of the past.
