Turchin seeks the causes that drove the end times of past societies, and discovers predictable patterns. Strained economic conditions of the poor and working class, and the competition for status and wealth among the elite are the leading factors, both of which, he notes, are alarmingly evident in the U.S. today. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
