Civilization Dynamics II: Nine Simulation Models
Together with Volume I (Fundamentals of a Model Oriented Description), this book provides a model based on the exploration of the operating problems of civilizations. Each of the main aspects of Volume I are described and analysed by a simulation model in this volume. The essence is, that civilizations are growth-stable, that position holders of power territories make experiments with large-scale social units (which becomes clear once more because of the war in the Gulf) and that this can lead into a growth-stability success trap.
