This work presents a broad historical approach to the title question: why do societies collapse?

Angles of Approach by Holly Iglesias

Publisher comments regarding Angles of Approach: It’s unusual to call a book of poetry a ‘page turner, ‘ but this collection, with the knocking and jostling of words that mark the peculiar rhythm and appeal of the prose poem, is just that. Iglesias has an uncanny ability to capture whole sweeps of history in a few lines, while her eye and ear for the quotidian result in the characters pulling us from one remarkable incident to another as if they had physically taken us by the elbow, whispering urgently.–Marie Harris
Holly Iglesias is the author of Souvenirs of a Shrunken World and a critical work, Boxing Inside the Box: Women’s Prose Poetry.
