National Crisis Viewed in the Light of Personal Crisis
Nations experience crises, whose solution requires adopting selective changes, and which some nations are more successful at solving than are other nations. We as individuals also experience personal crises, either associated with certain ages or else triggered by major life events. The solution of a personal crisis also requires adopting selective changes, which some are more successful at accomplishing than others. While using examples from his book Upheaval: How Nations Cope with Crisis and Change, Jared Diamond will examine the extent to which similar considerations help understand the outcomes of recent and impending national crises, and the impending world crisis.

RSVP is by invitation only.
