Jared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall. Now he reveals how successful nations recover from crisis. He shows us how nations have survived defining upheavals in the recent past. Looking ahead to the future, he investigates whether the United States and the world are squandering their natural advantages and are on a devastating path towards catastrophe.
