From the author of “Guns, Germs and Steel”, Jared Diamond's “Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Survive” is a visionary study of the mysterious downfall of past civilizations. Now in a revised edition with a new afterword, Jared Diamond's “Collapse” uncovers the secret behind why some societies flourish, while others founder - and what this means for our future. What happened to the people who made the forlorn long-abandoned statues of Easter Island? What happened to the architects of the crumbling Maya pyramids? Will we go the same way, our skyscrapers one day standing derelict and overgrown like the temples at Angkor Wat? Bringing together new 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” also shows how - unlike our ancestors - we can benefit from our knowledge of the past and learn to be survivors. “A grand sweep from a master storyteller of the human race”. (“Daily Mail”). “Riveting, superb, terrifying”. (“Observer”). “Gripping...the book fulfils its huge ambition, and Diamond is the only man who could have written it”. (“Economist”).“This book shines like all Diamond's work”. (“Sunday Times”). Jared Diamond (b. 1937) is Professor of Geography at the University of California, Los Angeles. Until recently he was Professor of Physiology at the UCLA School of Medicine. He is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the widely acclaimed “Guns, Germs, and Steel: the Fates of Human Societies”, which also is the winner of Britain's 1998 Rhone-Poulenc Science Book Prize.
