What is change? What is stability? How and why does each occur? Can they be predicted? The contributors discuss these questions and others about the nature of change through diverse case studies from Hawaii, Midwestern America, the American Southwest, Iran, and the Teotihuacan Valley in Mexico. They examine the theoretical nature of change—its causes, processes, and results—in an effort to form a coherent theory of societal evolution.
