Some soothsayers read the stars; William Strauss, coauthor with Neil Howe of The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy (Broadway Books, New York City, $15.95,, reads generations. The book discusses the characteristics of four recurring historical cycles: the first turning is a “high,” the second is an “awakening,” the third is an “unraveling” and the fourth is a “crisis.” Strauss predicts the United States is headed for a fourth turning, a time marked by upheaval as well as opportunity.
