Cline, Eric 1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed

Postby tahanson43206 » Tue Sep 22, 2015 2:07 pm

This is an account of the collapse of the civilized world of the Late Bronze age.

The author is professor of classics at George Washington University.

Link to brief review: http://press.princeton.edu/titles/10185.html

What I find striking is the sophistication of the pluralistic civilization, and its fragility.

The correspondence of the time to today's interconnected but extremely fragile civilization is striking.

To clarify, I have not read the book itself. I am basing this post on the review, at the link provided above.
