Futures Thinking for Social Foresight
Richard A. Slaughter and Marcus Bussey

Futures Thinking for Social Foresight is a comprehensive resource that introduces basic principles of futures studies for educators and students. The book, first published in 2005 and revised in 2012, includes a wide array of activities such as timelines and mapping techniques to help learners grasp the fundamental concepts of the discipline. In addition to classroom activities, the book contains dozens of provocative questions for reflection and discussion and well over 100 figures that illustrate key concepts.
