Between Two Ages; America's Role in the Technetronic Era.
Brzezinski, Zbigniew
An attempt to define the meaning--within a dynamic framework--of the emerging global political process focuses on changes brought about by the increasing use of technology, especially electronic technology. The book is divided into five major parts. The first deals with the impact of the scientific-technological revolution on world affairs in general. The second part examines how this revolution has affected the content, the style, and format of man's political outlook on his global reality, with particular reference to the changing role of ideology. In the third part, the relevance of the philosophy of communism to the problems of modernity is assessed. The fourth part focuses on the United States and seeks to define the thrust of change and the historical meaning of the current American transition. The fifth part outlines in very broad terms the general directions that America might take in order to make an effective response to the previously discussed foreign and domestic dilemmas. The system of education suggested in this section includes the wide-spread use of technologies such as television and computers to provide continuous educational opportunities spread throughout a lifetime, rather than the present educational system which concentrates education into one time span and one locality.
