Books such as “Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeedor “Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societieshave accompanied me through half of my study years and enlightend me with a new view on things as they. On the one hand stating possible factors for societies on which they might or might not collapse and giving another possibility to explaing the world as it is, Jared Diamond has certainly influenced me. to think twice.
