Book recommendation (maybe)

I heard an hour-long radio interview this morning with Francis Fukayama, whose latest book, _The Great Disruption: Human Nature and the Reconstitution of Social Order_, sounds up our alley -- in the introduction, he credits Neal Stephenson, and on the air he talked about Hayek, spontaneous order, and evolutionary psychology.

It's essentially a theoretical and practical framework for predicting social change, which sums down to "Human nature will win out." I haven't read the book yet, though, so the recommendation is tentative. He's a good enough speaker and he said enough of the right buzzwords for me to want to pick up a copy and check it out. || Unreasonable Software, Inc. || a trademark of USI:
