Turchin takes on the complex, often seemingly unfathomable discipline of Cliodynamics, an interdisciplinary study of recent socio- history in this book- the subject is the United States. Turchin did this 20 years ago, accurately predicting the tumultuous 2020 election. This is a powerful essay and critique of the U.S. current state of polarized politics and how we came to this state of affairs and some possible future outcomes. Turchin makes sense of all of it. This is a book every politician should read. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
