In his bestsellers Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse, Jared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall. Now he joins us to present Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis, the final installment of his monumental trilogy. Diamond reveals how successful nations recover from crisis through selective change—a coping mechanism more commonly associated with personal trauma. In a dazzling comparative study, Diamond identifies patterns across seven countries which have survived defining upheavals in the recent past through a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation. Join Diamond for an urgent and groundbreaking revelation on how individuals and nations alike can become more resilient.
