Looking Down the Road: A Systems Approach to Future Studies

Waveland Press

By Douglas Raybeck
Posted January 1, 2001
Tags Faculty Books
The ability to look ahead and to treat abstractions as serious business is a skill we all need to cultivate. So states Douglas Raybeck professor of anthropology, and the author of Looking Down the Road, a compelling short work involving the grand, if frustrating, human preoccupation with prediction. Raybeck supplies readers with some of the tools and ideas they will need as they attempt to forecast developments that are apt to characterize future society. Looking Down the Road reflects the author's anthropological training as it seeks to elucidate some of the processes and pressures that create social and cultural change.
