Meet the Author


Brooks Adams (1848-1927), the younger brother of the better-known Henry Adams, was a notable historian in his own right.  In books like The Law of Civilization and Decay (1895) and America's Economic Supremacy (1900), he espoused a theory of cyclical economic rise and fall to which all commercial civilizations are subject.
