Upheaval : Turning Points For Nations In Crisis

Author(s): Jared M. Diamond
In Jared Diamond's third book in his trilogy, he reveals how some nations successfully recover from crises while adopting selective changes--a coping mechanism more commonly associated with individuals recovering from personal crises. Diamond compares how six countries have survived recent upheavals. These nations coped, to varying degrees, through mechanisms such as acknowledgment of responsibility, painfully honest self-appraisal, and learning from models of other nations. Looking to the future, Diamond examines whether the United States, Japan, and the whole world are successfully coping with the grave crises they currently face. Upheaval reveals factors influencing how both whole nations and individual people can respond to big challenges.-- From dust jacket.
