Book Description:

What makes the modern world work? The answer to this deceptively simple question lies in four "grand transitions" of civilization--in populations, agriculture, energy, and economics--which have transformed the way we live. Now a fifth transition is underway: the environmental changes that will determine the success or eventual failure of the preceding transitions that have made the world we inhabit today.
