About Book of the 1980s: Alvin Toffler’s ‘The Third Wave’
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The National Library of Scotland received 2.9 million publications in the 1980s, but Graeme Hawley (Head of General Collections) feels that one book stands out above them all. Alvin Toffler’s The Third Wave is a masterpiece of futurology. Published in 1980, it deconstructs the building blocks of the industrial world at this crucial tipping point, and explains why the world that people knew was about to change so fundamentally.
Come along to hear Graeme’s thoughts on Toffler’s Third Wave, and what it can tell us about life today.
