Britain in 2010: The PSI Report
How will Britain develop in the next 20 years? No-one can be sure, but the best possible assessment of the prospects is needed for making rational long-term decisions in business, government and private life.
This PSI classic brings together a multi-disciplinary team of experts to make a systematic study of likely developments and areas of choice - one which analyses longer term past changes, but also takes account of recent developments, such as the collapse of communism, the moves towards full European Union, and the emerging concern about global warming. The evidence is assembled from a wide range of sources, and weighed up with objectivity and authority. It is presented in a style that is clear, concise and readable.
