Synopsis: The book shows that a long-term social behavior pattern of mankind (based on four generation trends) causes civilizations to develop and "oscillate" in patterns of routs and rallies. Civilizations rise and fall due to their internal human dynamics. The theory of civilization is developed using equations and 68 diagrams that show a close detailed match between the theory and the actual history of all known Asian, European and African civilizations over the last 5,500 years. The theory projects the future of today's civilizations (including the future of Western and Islamic civilizations). It also successfully describes the interaction of barbarians and civilizations, the interaction of two civilizations, the impact of modern technology on civilizations (it accounts for the Luddite reaction to the Industrial Revolution), the impact of major environmental events on civilizations (e.g. the collapse of Minoan civilization due to a volcanic eruption), and the disintegration of civilizations. It also accounts for the tremendous growth phases seen in many civilizations such as the building of the great pyramids in Egyptian civilizations. Based on the theory fifteen new civilizations are identified including new prehistoric Chinese and Egyptian civilizations.
From the Publisher: This book has an exciting new edition with a deeper theory of civilizations entitled "A Unified Quantitative Theory of Civilizations and Societies: 9600 BC - 2100 AD". It explores early civilizations in Sumeria, Anatolia and Peru as well as African civilizations; and civilizations after 3,000 BC to show that the theory closely agrees with the history of known civilizations and long-lived societies. In the Peruvian case it suggests that there are two "strings" of consecutive civilizations emanating from Caral - the "mother" civilization. They culminate in a unified Inca civilization after 4,000 years.
