Jared Diamond's new book, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, is now out and Tyler Cowen at Marginal Revolution has read it now. He points to some of the same problems I mentioned before (comparing modern societies to agricultural societies as if it is an apples-to-apples comparison), and finds the book problematic. He also points to some other reviews of the book at the bottom of his post.
