The Future of Human Society examines how people can study and know the future, and why it is important that they do. This paperback edition of Bell's seminal work describes the development of a new perspective in social science, futures studies, and explains why established social sciences ought to expand their purposes to more fully incorporate thinking about the future. It analyzes some of the most important works in the contemporary futures field and introduces many leading practitioners. It presents images of the future for our time, how they were created, and how they have helped shape the future itself. Finally, it evaluates what is possible and what is probable for the future of human society. This book is essential to all interested in the future of human societies, including sociologists, economists, political scientists, and historians.
