"The State of the Future distilles both foresight and genuine wisdom for humanity's common future - from a global, multi-cultural collegium of advanced thinkers assembled by the Millennium Project. A major social innovation." (Hazel Henderson)

"Scouting the future frontier into which we so slowly moved wasn't particularly challenging yesteryear.  Hugely different now; more so tomorrow, as this book reveals.  It is an eye opener: sober, challenging, exciting, appropriately scary.  It's something you should read if  you expect to go along, especially if you would like to affect the route."

Metodolog�a de Investigaci�n de Futuros (Spanish "Futures Research Methodologies")
Eduardo Ra�l Balbi, Editor

La Prospectiva o Investigaci�n de Futuros ha tenido en los �ltimos cuarenta a�os, una vida por momentos de esplendor, en otros sumamente azarosa en la regi�n latinoamericana. Los avanzados en el tema comenzaron casi al mismo tiempo que en Europa especialmente en Francia se desarrollaba esta disciplina. De esta manera, muchos fueron los pioneros y muchos m�s los intentos de incorporarla a las curr�culas universitarias y a los quehaceres de la actividad privada y de gobierno.
