07-05-2019 12:00:00 07-05-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Upheaval: Jared Diamond Book Talk | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm Jared Diamond – Pulitzer Prize winning author of the highly-influential Guns, Germs and Steel – launches his new book Upheaval at Pioneer Works. Upheaval presents Diamond's brilliant new theory of how and why some nations recover from trauma and others do not. Through portraits of seven countries – from the forced opening up of Japan and the Soviet invasion of Finland to the Pinochet regime in Chile – Diamond describes a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation more commonly associated with personal trauma. Therein is a lesson about resilience relevant to both nations and individuals. Looking to the future, Upheaval investigates whether the United States, and the world, are squandering their natural advantages and are on a devastating path towards catastrophe. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=347573 Pioneer Works Pioneer Works
