What is America? a short history of the new world order by Ronald Wright( file )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,417 libraries worldwide
"Ronald Wright shows how the New World created the modern world - and how the New World now threatens to undo it all. He lifts the veil on our advanced society to reveal the deeply archaic forces that are undermining it: religious extremism, militarism, and an unshakable faith in often-dangerous ideals like endless progress, unfettered capitalism, and a universal mission." "What is America? is a passionate - and essential - look at a thoroughly puzzling, and thoroughly troubling, time."--BOOK JACKET

A short history of progress by Ronald Wright( Book )

"A Short History of Progress is nothing less than a concise history of the world since Neanderthal times, elegantly written, brilliantly conceived, and stunningly clear in its warning to us now. Wright shows how human beings have a way of walking into "progress traps," beginning with the worldwide slaughter of big game in the Stone Age. The same pattern of overconsumption then took a new from, as many of the world's most creative civilizations - Mesopotamia, the Maya, the Roman Empire - fell victim to their own success."--BOOK JACKET
