Millennium: Towards Tomorrow’s Society by Francis Kinsman newly listed for sale on the fantastic BookLovers of Bath web site!W. H. Allen, 1990, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: At the time of publication there are ten years to go before the year 2000.
Our society is divided into three groupings conveniently labelled agrarian, industrial and post-industrial. Each group reflects different values. The agricultural upholds yesterdays beliefs in stability, changelessness and dependency; the industrial subscribes to economic growth, competitiveness, materialism and independence; whilst the post-industrial group is moving towards self-development, flexibility, protectiveness and inter-dependence as exemplified by the current Green revolution.
As we move towards the second millennium AD, these groups seem to be pulling against each other. We shall all have to decide which we want to belong to, irrespective of age, class, gender and region. But can our warring groupings collaborate to create a better society in the 21st century? Will the powerful business and political interests offer a lead in bringing them together? What can each of us do to make the next century a better place to live in and a hope for the future? These are tomorrows questions.
In this controversial and urgent discussion about the make up of our present and future society, Francis Kinsman forces us to face hard and unpalatable truths about what the human race must do if it is to survive into true adulthood.
