Examining thousands of years of social change, this work focuses not on the intellectual history of theories of change, but on how and why societies change. It includes sufficient case materials to make it suitable as a secondary text for courses in world history as well as a text in sociology and anthropology. The concluding chapter considers future possibilities, stressing the lessons from past changes for understanding contemporary issues and shaping future possibilities.
