The Fourth Turning, Neil Howe, William Strauss (1997)

If history was anything to go by according to the authors, in 1997, the world was on the brink of a MAJOR crisis: called The Fourth Turning which was likely to last 20 years. The outcome would change the World beyond recognition. And no, this is not a book about fiction...

Enter the social/economic repeated "cycles" ....The HIGH, The AWAKENING, The UNRAVELLING, The CRISIS

The Etruscans and the Romans described this as the saeculum.

Interesting to think that we are currently "IN THE THICK" of those predictions....

Podcast: HARDCORE HISTORY by Dan Carlin

Journalist, broadcaster and in my eyes (ears!), a master narrator with a very unorthodox approach to history: Was Alexander The Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilisations ever fall like civilisations from the past?

You get the drift. This man is a compelling story-teller. Enjoy!
