Alan J. Mayne
An analysis of contemporary and future politics and government. The author begins by examining major problems and issues, surveying different regimes, and assessing the wide variety of active and emerging political movements. He then explores political paradigms and ideologies through a "main political spectrum" to various alternatives. He outlines some possible elements for a new political paradigm that would be holistic in several different ways. Finally, he outlines scenarios for three possible futures and presents conclusions that indicate what can be done to achieve a political transition to maximize the prospects for a good human future in the 21st century.
