Forces of change: an unorthodox view of history
1st U.S. ed.
In Forces of Change, Henry Hobhouse argues provocatively, and most convincingly, that modern history has been shaped less by the actions of human beings than by three natural forces: population growth, food supply, and disease. Examining 500 years of history, Hobhouse observes the relative roles of these forces from the time of the Black Plague to the present day. Invigorating and immediate, his unconventional approach sheds a whole new light on history as we have presumed to know it. Revised and updated, this new edition is as witty and eminently readable as the original. Few books possess the insight and power to alter the way we think. Forces of Change is one. Book jacket.
