AVAILABLE NOW: a new book by Ronald Inglehart "Cultural Evolution"
A new book by Ronald Inglehart "Cultural Evolution: People's Motivations are Changing, and Reshaping the World" (2018).

It tests the implications of this theory against survey data from over 100 countries, surveyed from 1981 to 2014. The book presents the findings in discussions based on graphs rather than using equations and statistical tables.
