"What causes rich countries to lose their way? Symptoms of decline are all around us today: slowing growth, crushing debts, increasing inequality, aging populations, antisocial behavior. But what exactly has gone wrong? The answer, Niall Ferguson argues ... is that our institutions--the intricate frameworks within which a society can flourish or fail--are degenerating"--Dust cover flap.

  • "One of the great puzzles of history is how best to explain the fate of nations - the wheel of fortune that raises up some and throws down others. There are a bewildering range of explanations, mostly contradicting one another, and embracing everything from climate to resources, from technology to plain luck. All societies are linked however by perhaps the most remarkable, tangled and elaborate of human inventions - the institutions that hold us together."
