about this book

In Powershift, renowned futurist Alvin Toffler gives students the deepest, most comprehensive synthesis yet written about the civilization of the 21st century. He argues that while headlines focus on shifts of power at the global level, the very nature of power is changing before our eyes, in the everyday world we all inhabit-the world of supermarkets and hospitals, banks and business offices, television and telephones, politics and personal life.
