Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, Jared Diamond
From the ghostly stone heads of Easter Island to crumbling Mayan cities hidden deep in the jungle, the mysterious ruins of lost worlds and vanished civilizations continue to haunt us. How could such mighty societies fall? And could our skyscrapers one day stand derelict and overgrown like ancient temples?
Bringing together evidence from a startling range of sources and piecing together the myriad influences, from climate to culture, that make societies self-destruct, Jared Diamond's Collapse shows how - unlike our ancestors - we can benefit from our knowledge of the past and learn to be survivors.
