      Fully updated and including an expanded and extensive Windows computer simulation, this unique text/disk combination provides a survey of alternative futures in international relations. By manipulating a wide range of variables in major countries and geographical regions students can generate a limitless number of future scenarios in the areas of demographics, food, energy, the environment, economics, and sociopolitical systems. This edition has added capability for display of data and forecasts, has introduced extensive historical data and analysis capability, has extended the time horizon of forecasts, and has extensively expanded the Help system of the model. Complete with tables, flowcharts, feedback loops, computer notes, and research suggestions, the text and simulation allows students to transcend the usual level of speculation about the future by moving to an empirically grounded, values-based consideration of issues, strategies, and outcomes. This edition places a special emphasis on the environemnt, which has emerged as one of the most important areas in international relations.

Barry B. Hughes is professor of international relations in the Graduate School of International Studies at the University of Denver, and vice provost of graduate studies. He has written numerous articles and books, including World Futures (1985) and Continuity and Change in World Politics (2000).
