There are few books that have the insight and power to change the waywe think. Forces of Change is one. In this updated edition, HenryHobhouse argues provocatively, and most convincingly, that modernhistory has been shaped less by the actions of human beings than bythree natural forces: population growth, food supply, and disease.Together they form a self-balancing triangle: any change in thedimension of one side, Hobhouse shows, is and must be matched bychanges in one or both of the other sides. Using key examples from thehistory of the past five hundred years, the author opens our eyes to newpossibilities, so that history as learned from our textbooks takes on awhole new light.
