Product description

Review

An engaging and highly readable synthesis of history, science and social science that places itself on par with the greatest interdisciplinary writing of recent years. If you enjoyed Steven Pinker s The Better Angels of Our Nature, Niall Ferguson s Civilization, Fukuyama s The Origins of Political Order or Matt Ridley s The Rational Optimist, then this book is for you. --Ryan Smith, senior book editor at the Centre for Political Studie

The creative Society is a book that the reader cannot put down until you have reached the last page. It is simply exciting and fascinating. --Berlingske Tidende

Lars Tvede`s The Creative Society is a superb analysis of why different civilizations have lost momentum (...) Without a doubt one of the most important contributions to the public debate over the last decade. Read it and understand how we can create a prosperous future. --Brian Mikkelsen, chairman of the Danish political party The Conservatives

Format: Paperback
One should think writing a book about western civilisation for readers who thought they knew well history would be boring but from the start Lars Tvede wants to praise the western civilization achievement without making them seem like the only civilised people in the world.
He explains about creativity as a driver of civilization and progress creating opportunities and overcoming enemies like no other force. This important and fascinating book explains why decay is normal and give us clear ideas on what to do to avoid the crises our society is facing today.
This book is a must read for everybody who want a better society today.
