內容簡介

《槍砲、病菌與鋼鐵》人類學經典書籍作者賈德‧戴蒙最新作品

在《槍砲、病菌與鋼鐵》中,賈德‧戴蒙改變了人類看待文明起落的角度,而在這許多國家政局動盪不安的時代,賈德‧戴蒙則要說明是什麼元素可以讓一個國家保有彈性,可以從災難中復原

以日本、芬蘭、智利等六個國家,也是戴蒙曾經居住過的國家曾經歷過的災難為例,他說明應對的機制通常和個人創傷有關,而現代的美國、甚至是全世界都正面臨挑戰,浪費難以取回的天然資源,卻一步步走向災難之路,這樣的命運不可避免的嗎?又或者我們確實可以從過去學到教訓?

戴蒙加入了心理學角度看歷史、地理、生物學和他最知名的領域人類學,來分析國家和個人面對危機的態度,探究的角度很廣,卻同時又是相當細膩的一本書。

'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

In his landmark international bestsellers Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse, Jared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall. Now, at a time when crises are erupting around the world, he reveals what makes certain nations resilient in the face of tremendous upheaval.

In a riveting journey into the recent past, he traces how six countries have survived defining catastrophes - from the forced opening of Japan to the Soviet invasion of Finland to Chile's brutal Pinochet regime - through selective change, a coping mechanism more commonly associated with personal trauma. He identifies unique patterns in the way that these distinctive modern nations - all countries in which he has lived - have recovered from these upheavals. Looking ahead to the gravest threats we face in the future, he investigates the risk that the United States, and the world, are squandering their natural advantages and are on a devastating path towards catastrophe. Is this fate inevitable? Or can we still learn from the lessons of the past?

Adding a psychological dimension to the in-depth history, geography, biology, and anthropology that mark all of Diamond's books, Upheaval reveals the factors that influence how both nations and individuals can respond to enormous challenges. The result is a book epic in scope, but also his most personal yet.
