This is an uncommon first edition apocalyptic science book by Italian engineer Vacca. A bestseller upon its release, this prediction of the breakdown of modern technology was championed by Isaac Asimov, whose jacket quote reads "I have never read a book that was at the same time so convincing and so frightening." Very good / very good. Item #2777
