Overview

If you've ever been through a tricky situation, you know that getting out takes a lot of discipline. The solution usually comes through what's known as selective change. That's when you identify the problem and figure out what needs to change and what doesn't.

Running a country through times of crisis requires a similar approach. Whether we examine the crises of Chile and Indonesia in the 1970s, or Germany and Australia following WWII, we see similar problems with the solutions found through selective change.

In Jared Diamond's Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis, we take a fascinating look at seven countries facing crises. It will surprise you to see how similar problems arise in different countries that seem so different from one another. And you'll be enlightened to discover how each of them solved these issues.
