The writings of futurists in both technical fields and the social sciences are examined to determine the range of plausible world conditions which could materialize. In Volume One, three scenarios are developed depicting the world under varying degrees of international involvement and interstate conflict World-wide Withdrawal, in which the major nations are turning inward under the pressure of internal problems the Cooperative World, in which cooperative international interaction is intensified and a Conflictual World, characterized by interstate conflict.
