Editorial Reviews


Max Singer has done it again. In often beautiful, jargon-free prose, he explains the essence of modernity and why it is the way of the future. Anyone who wants to understand where the world of politics, economics, and freedom is headed must read this book. Singer has an amazing ability to make the complicated simple, straightforward and compelling. (Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, New York University and the Hoover Institution)

This is the most brilliant, most important book of our time. Clearly and concisely, Max Singer explains why the Mideast is on fire, and why we are moving through history's most stunning transformation ― to a time when virtually the entire human race will have joined the modern world. A History of the Future should be required reading by every foreign minister, every intelligence chief, and every head-of-state. (Herbert E. Meyer, Vice Chairman of the CIA's National Intelligence Council)

Max Singer, who co-founded the Hudson Institute with Herman Kahn, is always full of original, provocative and sometimes mind-bending insights. You'll never look at a problem quite the same way again once you've read Max's assessment of it. (Nicholas Eberstadt, American Enterprise Institute)

History of the Future points the way to victory, not merely for Republican or conservative candidates but for humanity. It's a knockout. (American Thinker)

Freedom and progress are contagious, and societies that have them in abundance are role models to those that do not. In History of the Future, Hudson Institute co-founder and senior fellow Max Singer forecasts that modern civilization—as Japan, the United States, and other industrialized countries know it— will take root in every country around the world....History of the Future will be an inspiring read to anyone who wonders how the world might move beyond present difficulties. (The Futurist)
