A New York Times Notable Book
How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed
“A manifestly important work. Diamond sees
five factors that have contributed in varying
degrees to social collapse: environmental
destruction, global climate change, increase in
hostilities with other societies, decease in
friendly relations with trade partners, and a
failure to recognize or address the first four
sets of problems.”— Times Literary Supplement.
“In this exhaustively researched new book,
[Diamond] presents carefully detailed case histories of failed societies. Diamond’s central
proposition is that wherever these globally disparate societies failed the chief cause had been
anthropogenic ecological devastation.”—
