520    "With his international bestsellers Guns, Germs and Steel 
       and Collapse, Jared Diamond transformed our understanding 
       of why civilizations rise and fall. Now, in his third book
       in this monumental trilogy, he reveals 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-
       -ranging from the forced opening of Japan by U.S. 
       Commodore Perry's fleet, to the Soviet Union's attack on 
       Finland, to a murderous coup or countercoup in Chile and 
       Indonesia, to the transformations of Germany and Austria 
       after World War Two. Because Diamond has lived and spoken 
       the language in five of these six countries, he can 
       present gut-wrenching histories experienced firsthand. 
       These nations coped, to varying degrees, through 
       mechanisms such as acknowledgment of responsibility, 
       painfully honest self-appraisal, and learning from models 
       of other nations. Looking to the future, Diamond examines 
       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? Adding a 
       psychological dimension to the in-depth history, geography,
       biology, and anthropology that mark all of Diamond's books,
       Upheaval reveals factors influencing how both whole 
       nations and individual people can respond to big 
       challenges. The result is a book epic in scope, but also 
       his most personal book yet"--|cPublisher's description
