SYNOPSIS: Most of us, from government officials to private citizens, are unable to see farther than the next election. The future, we are convinced, will overtake us long before we have time to do anything about it. Yet unless we consider the future now, all our solutions will be merely expedient. As Alvin Toffler pointed out in Future Shock, success over the long haul is impossible with short-range planning. Anticipatory democracy (A/D) is an approach to problem-solving that combines future consciousness with broad-based public participation, and it is clearly an idea whose time has come. State, local, and regional A/D groups are springing up all over the country, and in Congress the House of Representatives has added a "foresight" provision to its Rules, requiring committees to consider the future on a continuing basis. In this volume leading futurists, professional planners, and future-oriented citizens describe practical applications of A/D from coast to coast, addressing issues ranging from housing and health care to ecology and technology, in settings as diverse as Congress, private corporations, voluntary organizations, and urban black communities.
