Mankind and the Year 2000
By V. Kosolapov
Progress, 1976, 236 pp

Of interest chiefly because of its Russian source, this volume exemplifies the difficulty in mixing ideology with futurology. According to the cover, the author "demonstrates the fundamental difference between the Marxist-Leninist prevision of the future and bourgeois futurology, and shows the close connection between the scientific and technological revolution and the Communist remaking of the world"; nevertheless, there are some interesting insights to be gained here.
