Books I've Read (Fall/Winter 2005)

Jared Diamond, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed (soci0-environmental history)

Popular, and deservedly so. Diamond examines a brace of societies throughout history which collapsed for seemingly unknown reasons, and traces the thread of environmental carelessness through each one. It's no mamby-pamby save-the-spotted owls whine; instead, it's a wakeup call for responsible resource management.
