Editorial Reviews

Review

What will be the future of human demographic, economic, environmental, and political-social systems throughout the twenty-first century? Where do current changes appear to be taking us? What kind of future would we prefer? How much leverage do we have to bring about the future we prefer? If you share my interest in these critical questions, you will benefit greatly from this book and the International Futures (IFs) modeling system. This large-scale integrated global simulation modeling system is a user-friendly professional tool for long-term policy analysis and education. -- Pentti Malaska, Professor of MS, DrTech, futurist, Honorary member of the Club of Rome This is an essential guide to understanding current trends and to mapping the future. Only the integration of economic, social, and environmental trends can give us a sufficient understanding of each. -- Peter Johnston, European Commission and the Club of Rome Exploring and Shaping International Futures is unique in futures studies and among the other social sciences. No other text covers the major transformations shaping the global future with as strong an empirical base and with as much room for students and others to determine for themselves which of these are problems, which are solutions, and what should be done with them to improve our joint future. -- Peter C. Bishop, Ph.D, Founding Member, Association of Professional Futurists Barry Hughes's seminal efforts over the last twenty years have addressed the challenge to global systems modelers initiated by Jay Forrester's World Dynamics. Together the text and the IFs computer model offer a fascinating compendium of theories, data, and formal modeling. The new book with Evan Hillebrand provides a wonderful learning environment as well as a valued test bed for debate about practical policy. Users familiar with the earlier version will see steady and subtle improvements extending the information base as well as providing new on-line modeling capabilities. -- Sam Cole, Professor, University at Buffalo, former North American editor, Futures This is truly a book for a new millennium. It allows the reader to explore future global issues and to investigate the impact of possible policy changes. -- Dennis Pirages, Harrison Professor of International Environmental Politics at the University of Maryland, board member of the World Future Society
