In UnCivilization, Gregory Copley, with four decades of
successful analysis of global strategic trends, offers an original view of how the world is
changing, and where the United States and the West fit into the future balance of power.
He outlines how we are already entering an age in which global population levels will
begin to decline substantially, even as urbanization and transnational migration – driven
by economics and security – gather pace. These patterns of mass migration – mostly
economic refugeeism – are also intersecting with economic and scientific patterns, while
urban social attitudes have created a revolutionary new political, social, and strategic
reality. “Urban geopolitics” – new logic patterns which mirror urban needs – are having
significant electoral consequences. Moreover, “urban man” is now “energy man”, which
alters the entire pattern of threats and opportunities as electricity dominates life to a far
greater degree even than the 20th Century. Copley concludes that this is an entirely new
game and it’s time to learn the rules. For more information and to RSVP, please visit
