Description: The future is the last frontier where nonwestern societies are still free -- free to envision desirable futures based on their own experience, cultures, and traditions. Yet the field of futures studies, this volume argues, has abandoned the goal of exploring such diverse and alternative futures in favor of a single, myopic vision that is locked into the framework of western thought and action. Its overemphasis on forecasting and prediction, its overpreoccupation with technology, and its neglect of nonwestern cultures and concerns have transformed "future studies" into an instrument for the colonization of the future. Distinguished contributors from a variety of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds discuss ways of bringing multiculturalism and plurality to the heart of futures studies and point towards new, decolonizing directions.
