A Short History of Progress

Written by Ronald Wright

Each time history repeats itself, the cost goes up.  We live in a time of runaway growth in human numbers, consumption and technology. 

The great questions we now face is how, and whether, this can go on, and more deeply, whether it should.  A Short History of Progress  is nothing less    than a concise history of the world since Neanderthal times.  Only by understanding our pattern of progress and disaster can we hope to change our ways and ensure that civilization has a long term future.
