The authors lean back five hundred years, and discover a distinct model: Modern history moves in cycles, each lasting about the length of a human life, each composed of four epochs, or “twists” – which last about twenty years and which always arrive in the same order.The first of a High, of a time favorable to expansion as a new order that takes root at the end of the old one has been won.Then comes an awareness, a spiritual one, exploration and rebellion against the established order.Then comes the disintegration, an increasingly troubled era in which individualism prevails over collapsing institutions.Last comes from Crisis – the Fourth Turning Point – when society passes through a great and perilous door in historyTogether, the four rotations include the history of the seasonal rhythm of growth, maturation, entropy, and rebirth.Applying the lessons of history, The Fourth Revolving sometimes makes daring and hopeful predictions about America’s next rendezvous with destiny.It also shows us how we can prepare ahead of time, both individually and as a nation.
