Overview

This book was originally published in 1976. Two years before publication, the European Community decided it was suffering from a lack of long-term planning and forecasting, and its Council of Ministers called for a study of how to put this right. The project, known as Europe Plus Thirty, involved forty people from almost as many professions and from all the Community countries. It was directed by Wayland Kennet, who wrote this book based on material produced by members of the project team and specially designed to appeal to a general audience. He combined the specialized knowledge of his colleagues with his own experience as an author, politician, and government minister to answer various questions. In the course of this study, almost all aspects of the perceived future in Western Europe are reviewed - demographic as well economic, political as well as technological, climatic as well as agricultural.
