Join us via Zoom for the Pacific Beach Library's monthly book discussion!

Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis  by Jared Diamond
Upheaval explores how some nations successfully recover from crises while adopting selective changes—a coping mechanism more commonly associated with individuals recovering from personal crises. Diamond compares how six countries have survived recent upheavals, then looks to the future to examine whether the United States, Japan, and the whole world are successfully coping with the grave crises they currently face. Can we learn from lessons of the past?
