Editorial Reviews

An alphabetical reference on impending change and the future, with an emphasis on the next 25 years, as articulated in the forecasts of hundreds of intellectuals worldwide, including Nobel laureates, former heads of government, and experts in many disciplines. Most of the 450 entries focus on specific issues, problems, and opportunities, while others examine the major themes that dominated the last few decades, and some deal with forecasting methods. The emphasis is on the US and other English-speaking countries, but coverage of other countries and international perspectives are also included. The appendix includes a chronology of futurism, a listing of the most influential futurists and futurist books, and a listing of commissions and work groups on the future. Excellent introduction by Daniel Bell. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
