Guns are a black and white issue, right? Well, it's not quite that simple. This book covers every aspect of the gun debate in the US - from hunting to mass shootings to questions about constitutional rights, no angle is left unexplored. Written mostly as the current debate about guns and gun control was heating up, you'll find well-written and thought out points here as well as introspection about the dangers inherent in an armed and sometimes unstable society. Questions about what the Second Amendment is really for and the seeming ubiquity of violence in society are juxtaposed against concrete concerns about self-protection, tradition, and the clash of cultures in a fantastically listenable and engaging format that moves at a breathless pace. One of the only books that presents every side of the issue, this is a must-listen for those even moderately interested in the topic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Glouchevitch, Tanya Eby.

In Jared Diamond’s follow-up to the Pulitzer-Prize winning Guns, Germs and Steel, the author explores how climate change, the population explosion, and political discord create the conditions for the collapse of civilization. Environmental damage, climate change, globalization, rapid population growth, and unwise political choices were all factors in the demise of societies around the world, but some found solutions and persisted. As in Guns, Germs, and Steel, Diamond traces the fundamental pattern of catastrophe, and weaves an all-encompassing global thesis through a series of fascinating historical-cultural narratives. Collapse moves from the Polynesian cultures on Easter Island to the flourishing American civilizations of the Anasazi and the Maya and finally to the doomed Viking colony on Greenland. Similar problems face us today and have already brought disaster to Rwanda and Haiti, even as China and Australia are trying to cope in innovative ways. Despite our own society’s apparently inexhaustible wealth and unrivaled political power, ominous warning signs have begun to emerge even in ecologically robust areas like Montana. Brilliant, illuminating, and immensely absorbing, Collapse is destined to take its place as one of the essential books of our time, raising the urgent question: How can our world best avoid committing ecological suicide? 1.
