Creating Highly Adaptive Societies

by John Kemp

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Highly adaptive societies will determine whether civilization survives the challenges of the 21st century. Choosing Survival presents this startling new concept, defining such societies and showing how they have evolved, spread around the world, created a complex interactive network, and become the principal drivers of social change. The extraordinary events associated with the global evolution of highly adaptive societies are presented continent by continent and nation by nation. This unique model of social change provides a compelling new narrative for the modern era of world history, a fundamental reinterpretation of the current geopolitical scene, and numerous striking predictions about the future of the US, the EU, China, Russia, India and the other nations of the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
