The History of the Future: The Shape of the World to Come Is Visible Today
Item Number: 3014
See below for purchase/download information.
Human character has always been shaped by struggles against poverty, tyranny, and war. Hudson Institute co-founder and Senior Fellow Max Singer's new book, The History of the Future: The Shape of the World to Come Is Visible Today (Lexington Books), argues that poverty, tyranny, and war will be largely eliminated in the future. Without the struggles that have plagued humanity throughout history, Singer says we will have to find new ways to shape character. In this work which continues the research into the future that Singer began with Herman Kahn a half-century ago, Singer asks the important question: will people really be better off when the whole world has become wealthy, free, and peaceful? Professor Bruce Bueno de Mesquita of New York University praises The History of the Future by stating that “anyone who wants to understand where the world of politics, economics, and freedom is headed must read this book.” Singer is a Senior Fellow at Hudson Institute and at the BESA Institute of Bar Ilan University in Israel. He is the author of Passage to a Human World: the Dynamics of Creating Global Wealth, with a foreword by Irving Kristol (Transaction Publishers, 2d ed. 1989); and of The REAL World Order: Zones of Peace/Zones of Turmoil, with Aaron Wildavsky (Chatham House, rev'd ed. 1996).
