A SHORT HISTORY OF PROGRESS
Each time history repeats itself, the cost goes up. We live at a time of runaway growth in human numbers, consumption, and technology. Wright shows how human beings have a way of falling into "progress traps," beginning with the worldwide slaughter of big game in the Stone Age. Only by understanding our patterns of progress and disaster can we hope to ensure the future of civilization.
