Product description

Review

Fascinating... I'm a big fan of everything Jared has written, and his latest is no exception. ... I finished the book even more optimistic about our ability to solve problems than I started. (Bill Gates, Summer Reading Recommendations 2019)

Upheaval is bold, wide-ranging and original ... probes large and important questions. Unlike most social scientists, Diamond can write invigorating prose that carries the reader along with its sweep ... It deserves to be widely read and pondered. (Vernon Bogdanor The Sunday Telegraph)

A riveting and illuminating tour of how nations deal with crises-which might hopefully help humanity as a whole deal with our present global crisis. (Yuval Noah Harari, author of 'Sapiens' and '21 Lessons for the 21st Century')

Jared Diamond is an undisputed global star of comparative history... Britain could learn from this book about how other nations have dealt with turmoil... He finds intellectually stimulating and unusual examples that provide much food for thought. (Andrew Marr The Times)

Diamond writes so well, and his frame of reference (across disciplines and languages) is so considerable, that almost everything he describes comes across as fresh. (Douglas Murray The Evening Standard)

[Diamond] wears the mantle of a modern-day prophet . . . opens textures of historical possibility. Only the most obtuse reader of his latest book, on national resilience, could miss the signs and portents with which it is studded ... The prophet spares us chiselled commandments, but we have been warned. (Colin Kidd, Book of the Day The Guardian)

Fascinating globe-hopping study (The Telegraph)

As a meditation about a world on edge, it is well worth reading (The Economist)

Persuasive . . . runs refreshingly counter to conventional wisdom (Bloomberg)

Jared Diamond does it again: another rich, original, and fascinating chapter in the human saga-with vital lessons for our difficult times. (Steven Pinker, author of 'Enlightenment Now')

About the Author

Jared Diamond is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the seminal million-copy-bestseller Guns, Germs, and Steel, which was named one of Time magazine's best non-fiction books of all time, Collapse, a No. 1 international bestseller, and The World Until Yesterday, among other books. A professor of geography at UCLA and noted polymath, Diamond's work has been influential in the fields of anthropology, biology, ornithology, ecology and history, among others.
