This bibliography of public policy and general futures literature is intended primarily for educators and educational policy makers in Canada and particularly those who are responsible for shaping education in Ontario. The bulk of the entries are items published in Canada and America between 1970 and 1980. Also included are some selected items published between 1949 and 1969 and several pre-1949 classics. Section I cites books and research on education at all levels and the future. Entries in the second section represent other themes among the general futures literature. Sections three through five cite bibliographies and directories, books and periodicals dealing with policy, planning and future studies. Major subject categories which emerge are: Canadian unity, constitutional reform, politics and government, economics, and social and cultural issues. Other predominant themes include various global views of the future, peace, war, affluence, poverty, development and underdevelopment, the law, crime, violence, communications, technology, learning, health, illness, inventiveness, transportation, growth and its limits, the environment and ecological balance in nature, urban and rural contrasts, childhood, youth, old age, death, life, energy, space, imagination and creativity.
