In a changing world, conflict is inevitable -- but defeat is not. In fact, by understanding how civilizations and societies naturally evolve, one can not only adapt but flourish, and emerge better than ever in any sphere: personal, professional, or global.
Award-winning historian and global strategist Gregory R. Copley draws from decades of experi-ence advising political and military leadership to offer a holistic and balanced view of simple success strategies, with 28 maxims for survival and prosperity in the advancing wave of social, technological, and environmental change we now face.
