Emmanuel Todd is one of two people I know of in the entire world who predicted the fall of the USSR--the other was the late and sorely missed economics prof Clif Grubbs, at UT, around 1980. I've had the opportunity to ask both Sy Hersh and Jim Bamfield, the two leading US writers of the intelligence world, if they ever knew of a soul in the intelligence agencies who predicted same--both had never encountered one. Todd's warning about the US' impending decline must be heeded. The key question, untouched in this book, is if our society has it in itself to successfully manage the economic deflation (Todd predicts a necessary 15% drop in GNP) that Todd sees coming. Well-written, lacks the statistical annex that it should have to explain his conclusions. Highly recommend reading this book.
