Jared Diamond

Monday, May 13, 7:30 p.m.

In Partnership with World Affairs Council of Dallad/Fort Worth 

Esteemed scientist and historian Jared Diamond presents a brilliant new theory of how and why some nations recover from trauma and others do not. Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis reveals how seven countries have successfully survived defining upheavals in the recent past through a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation, and identifies patterns in the way that these distinct nations recovered from calamity. Looking ahead to the future, Diamond investigates whether the United States and the world are squandering their natural advantages, on a path toward political conflict and decline. Diamond won a Pulitzer Prize for his internationally bestselling book Guns, Germs, and Steel.
