The Hot List Delphi. An Exploratory Survey of Essential Reading for the Future.
Marien, Michael, Ed.
This report lists 236 books and articles of which 192 have been rated by a panel of 14 qualified futurists. The findings of this survey are being made available to aid in the professionalization of the field of futures research; to encourage more and better surveys such as this one; and to provide a somewhat authoritative list of selected readings for policymakers, professionals, students, and concerned citizens who wish to further their understanding of futures, futurists, and futuristics. The documents are rated according to merit and reading audience. Futures documents are annotated and classified according to (1) general overviews; (2) general symposia and anthologies; (3) technology and its impacts; (4) population, resources and environment; (5) government and international relations; (6) business and economics; (7) the individual, the family, and youth; (8) communications and education; (9) futures "classics"; (10) utopias and science fiction; (11) methodology; and (12) bibliographies and directories. From these documents, 36 were selected as a recommended basic library for futurists. The review also includes information about how to acquire the documents surveyed. A related document is ED 061 636. (Author/DN)
