More About This Textbook


The Human Race will enter the third millennium on the crest of a far-reaching social change. According to the theory of the promising Russian economist and sociologist Vladislav Inozemtsev, a new type of society is taking shape, one in which the motivations of an increasingly wide spectrum of people are essentially non-economic. The emergence of this post-economic society gives rise to major contradictions, both within the developed post-industrial countries and on the international scene. These contradictions are rooted in the different capacity of individuals and whole nations for absorbing the growing flow of information and generating new knowledge - something that underlines today's technological and social progress. At the turn of the century, the researcher sees humanity as a ""divided civilisation"". The prospects for its development are what this book analyses. Vladislav L. Inozemtsev (b. 1968) is a Professor in the Economics Department of Moscow State University and Director of the Centre for Post-Industrial Studies under the Russian Academy of Sciences. Professor Inozemtsev has authored eight books on theoretical aspects of contemporary international economy and economic history published in Russia during 1995-2000, as well as over 140 articles in the Russian academic press. One of his books has been translated into French (V.L. Inozemtsev, Contribution à la théorite de la formation post-économique de la société, Paris, 1996) and another one into English (V.L. Inozemtsev, The Constitution of the Post-Economic State: Post-Industrial Theories and Post-Economic Trends in the Contemporary World, Aldershot, England, 1998). Between 1997-2000, he translated into Russian and edited several books by Western economists and sociologists, including The Calculus of Consent and The Limits of Liberty by James Buchanan, The Coming of Post-Industrial Society by Daniel Bell as well as the anthology Modern Post-Industrial Wave in the West comprising excerpts from the works of Lester Thurow, Peter Drucker, Francis Fukuyama, John K. Galbraith, A. Etzioni, etc.
From 1994 Vladislav L. Inozemtsev has been Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Moscow-Paris Commercial Bank. In 1998-1999 he was invited to Harvard University, USA as a visiting lecturer on Russian Economics. Since 1997 Vladislav L. Inozemtsev has been living in Moscow and Paris.
