A superb book.—John Markoff, University of Pittsburgh

Roehner and Syme have written an original, idea-filled, illustration-rich analysis of causal sequences that repeat themselves in surprisingly different historical niches. Coming at history from the perspective of the natural sciences, they challenge both extremes: historical particularism, on the on side, and the search for general laws covering complex historical episodes, on the other… Good ideas, analogies, and illustrations come swirling and densely packed, leaving a lot of standard historical terrain littered with debris.—Charles Tilly, Columbia University
