Can you please tell us about your book and why you wrote it?
The book is an outline of dominant world cultures since 1400 which demonstrates that the rise and fall of each culture or society is cyclical. Once the cycle is recognized then the future of the current dominant culture can be forecast. My forecast is that the USA will lose dominance to China 2020-2028. There is a connection between climate change and the rise and fall of dominant cultures that suggests future hot/dry weather will cause psychological upheaval in the 2030s.
What were some of the biggest challenges you faced writing it?
Most history is about the details of historical figures. I could not find books which dealt with the big picture of many dominant cultures.
Do you plan subsequent books?
At my age I doubt that another large book is in my future.
When and why did you begin writing?
I commenced writing when as a commodities futures broker, I needed books to educate my clients.
What is your greatest strength as an author?
I enjoy research
Did writing this book teach you anything?
Patience over decades of research
