ABSTRACT
The author presents his opinion of the selection of southwestern Montana by Jared Diamond as one of the subjects of his book "Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed." In general, Diamond examines the rise and fall of civilizations, from Polynesia to pre-Columbian Mayan and Anasazi. However, he devotes a whole chapter to his current home, southwestern Montana, by exploring issues such as the demise of agriculture, mining and logging, the deterioration of native forests and grasslands, as well as the rise of the class-splitting amenity economy. The author wishes that Diamond could have chosen another Western sate to make his case such as Arizona.
