I have followed Gregory Copley's writings for decades and was pleased to get one of the first copies of UnCivilization: Urban Geopolitics in a Time of Chaos. His thinking gives a unique perspective reaching to the core of the present problems of humanity and civilization, and he takes us in a most thought-provoking way through the challenges we can expect in the coming decades. This book will be an imperative guide for thinkers, politicians, and students of strategy and history. We are living in the most unstable period of human history, with ever-increasing, cancerous economic, cultural and political problems, for which we have been without proper solutions. This exceptionally readable book gives us the first glimmer of how we can approach this transformational century.

Proud Australian, with a distinguished English lineage, Copley is ultimately a citizen of the world. His vast experience criss-crossing the globe -- be it in visiting warring hotspots or consulting with heads of government and state -- enhance his analytical and strategic credentials. In Uncivilization, this self-styled "cartographer of human paths" succinctly chronicles old civilizations and hints at what will in time befall the United States. Copley fears the worst for clogged-up city-states unable to achieve a balance between urban and rural priorities.
Tellingly, he observes that, "by 2012, the European Union had become Germany...clearly, if history is any guide, Russia and the PRC (People's Republic of China) would ultimately come to compete with Germany's manufacturing." Yet, just over sixty years ago, an unconditionally defeated Germany lay prostrate.
Verse written by Wordsworth of Newton, could equally well apply to Gregory Copley who has "a mind for ever voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone."

This book reveals the unpleasant future of the nation state dying and being replaced by a new global order of chaotic urban citystates which are becoming more contrary and antithetical to the rest of the rural lands. The doing away of the important balance between the city and the country.
