By Robert L. Heilbroner

Mr. Heilbroner scrutinizes the numerous "revolutions" of our century--economic, scientific, cultural as well as political--and attempts to ascertain the drift of the future. Well written and stimulating in its insights, it leaves little room for any relaxed optimism about the shape of things to come.
