it was amazing
Recommended for: greenies

Spectacular, but very academic. Reviews why societies like Rome and the Maya collapsed and presents a broad theory that when oversimplified, amounts to diminishing returns to the point of not being able to maintain the infrastructure that a society depends upon.
