Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Survive
Diamond, Jared M.,
ISBN: 0713998628
Allen Lane, Camberwell, 2005. reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: photographic & maps. reprint. the pages are slightly darkened on the edges, small crease to the front cover, otherwise the book is without damage and is free of annotation. Efforts to understand past collapses (of civilisation) have had to confront one major controversy and 4 major complications. The controversy involves resistance to the idea that past peoples (some of them known to be ancestral to people currently alive and focal) did things that contributed to their own decline. We are much more conscious of environmental damage now than we were a few decades ago. In fact, both extreme sides of this controversy, the racists and the believers in a past Eden are committing the error of viewing past indigenous people as fundamentally different from (whether inferior to all superior to) modern 1st world peoples.

Life on Earth A natural history
Attenborough, Sir David,
ISBN: 0002190915
Collins, UK, 1979. Reprint
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Reprint. Told through an examination of animal and plant life today - with occasional juxtapositions of extinct fossil forms to reveal the origin of living creatures - "Life on Earth" is an astonishing pageant of life, with a cast of characters drawn from the whole range of living animals the world over. Attenborough's perceptive, dynamic approach to the evolution of some four million species of living organisms that populate the planet is to trace the most significant thread in the history of each major group. He then proceeds to explain from the evidence of living representatives and fossil remains why certain animals adapted and survived, evolved to more complex and "higher" forms of life, while others, by some inherent limitation imposed by their physiology or structure, failed and became extinct.
