Read in January, 2006

The author makes no bones about having an agenda, but he supports it by many detailed explorations about ecological factors in the collapse of several historical societies. His most sobering point is that these societies on the edge of collapse typically do not make major changes until they reach a tipping point, and by that time it is too late.
