A Short History of Progress is a non-fiction book and lecture series by Ronald Wright about societal collapse. The lectures were delivered as a series of five speeches, each taking place in different cities across Canada as part of the 2004 Massey Lectures which were broadcast on the CBC Radio program, Ideas. The book version was published by House of Anansi Press and released at the same time as the lectures. The book spent more than a year on Canadian best-seller lists, won the Canadian Book Association's Libris Award for Non-Fiction Book of the Year, and was nominated for the British Columbia's National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction. It has since been reprinted in a hardcover format with illustrations and also in Kindle and EPUBdigital formats.

  • Brève histoire du progrès (A Short History of Progress en version originale anglaise) est un essai et un résumé de conférences données par Ronald Wright à propos de la notion de déclin de civilisation. La version anglaise du livre est lancée en 2004, alors que les éditions Hurtubise en publient une traduction en 2006. À partir de l'analyse de la disparition de l'homme de Néandertal et de l'effondrement de la population de l'île de Pâques et des civilisations romaine, sumérienne et maya, l'auteur expose les « pièges du progrès » pouvant mener à l'aveuglement et l'effondrement des civilisations.
