End of Humanity.

    The end of the world, armageddon, apocalypse, whatever you call it.

    What are some books I can get which detail these possibilities, and the possibilities and probabilities of events occuring?

    "Apocalypse Now," "The Heart of Darkness," for a broader read about how societies rise and fall try something like "Guns Germs and Steel" by Jared Diamond or his book "Collapse."

    Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now aren't actually about apocalyptic scenarios. They're just war stories where the commander goes insane and needs to be taken out.
