Penguin (Allen Lane) 2005 Papeback Excellent None issued 23.5cm 
name on 1st p > GBks review > "Essential reading ... Collapse [shows] that resilient societies are nimble ones, capable of long-term planning and of abandoning deeply entrenched but ultimately destructive core values and beliefs."

"Extraordinarily panoramic ...Diamond's complex historical web of how human communities either master their environment or become victims of them ... takes a lifetime of research and, in normal English, leads the reader painstakingly where the media and intellectual journals have often refused to go." 575 clean well bound pp, photos mid section, weight about 1kg packed for post
