Spekke, Andrew A., Ed.
This volume contains a selection of 43 papers submitted in advance to the World Future Society's Second General Assembly. Papers were selected for their general interest and relevance to the theme of the meeting--a look at the prospects for mankind during the final quarter of the 20th century. Authors include Roy Amara, Lester Brown, Jay W. Forrester, Willis Harman, Herman Kahn, John Platt, Robert Theobald, and others. Articles present and examine new dimensions of the future and problems that the world is facing; goals for the global society; the world community and its future; problems and possible consequences of politics, democracy, and economic alternatives; social inventions, women as futurists, and futures studies; intimate relationships, sex, and the future; the future of art and design; criminal justice and the law, and its relation to the future; and forecasting and possible new policies.
