Title: Jared Diamond Lecture "Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed"
Date: Thu. Mar 02, 2006
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Description: Author and biologist Jared Diamond is renowned globally for his popular scientific works that combine anthropology, biology, linguistics, genetics, and history. He is the author of the 1997 book Guns, Germs, and Steel, which asserts that the main international issues of our time are legacies of processes that began during the early-modern period, in which civilizations that had experienced an extensive amount of "human development" began to intrude upon simpler civilizations around the world. In his most recent book, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, Diamond examines what caused some of the great civilizations of the past to collapse into ruin and considers what contemporary society can learn from their fates. Diamond is currently a professor of geography and of environmental health sciences at the University of California - Los Angeles.
