Samhälle i kris : vår förmåga till anpassning och omorientering

Att lära sig hantera en kris är centralt i människans tillvaro. Krig, revolutioner och pandemier är återkommande företeelser i mänsklighetens historia. I denna antologi undersöker tjugofem världsledande forskare hur olika samhällen reagerar i sådana situationer. De belyser människans unika förmåga till anpassning och omorientering. En kris medför problem men också möjligheter. Antologin utges i en rikt illustrerad utgåva med vackert klotband. Huvudredaktörer är Mattias Hessérus och Iain Martin.
