Introduction

Tbe Prospects of Industrial Civilization is the most ambitious of Russell's work on modern society. It provides the reader with a survey of the different aspects of industrialism in the twentieth century, covering those parts of the globe where it was new and disruptive of ancient social orders as well as those parts of the world where it has already created new forms of life and behaviour. Prospects crosses the boundaries of disciplines by proposing theories that connect international politics, sociology, and moral philosophy.
