Summary
"... The pieces we've brought together here in What Future are some of the best, most interesting, and most prophetic essays and articles we've found about the future : what it might look like, how we might think about it, and what it might mean. We limited our selection to work published in 2016, with a few exceptions, and tried to balance the mix to address some of the most salient issues we see facing human civilization and American culture over the short-to-middle-term horizon."--page 13
