David E. Stuart incorporates extensive new research findings through groundbreaking archaeology to explore the rise and fall of the Chaco Anasazi and how they parallel patterns throughout modern societies in this new edition. Adding new research findings on caloric flows in prehistoric times and investigating the evolutionary dynamics induced by these forces as well as exploring the consequences of an increasingly detached central Chacoan decision-making structure, Stuart argues that Chaco's failure was a failure to adapt to the consequences of rapid growth, including problems with the misuse of farmland, malnutrition, loss of community, and inability to deal with climatic catastrophe.
Have modern societies learned from the experiences and fate of the Chaco Anasazi, or are we risking a similar cultural collapse?

great book about puebloan history
I'm new to Southwest cultures in the US and I think this book was a great source of information to me.
the audio book had some skips in it, so I don't know what I missed. also, audio chapter breaks between the actual book and the audio version don't match.
narration was clear and easy to understand. the Anasazi are a fascinating culture.
