Review:

"Professor Drucker's book has tremendous scope. . . . [It] is a useful, stimulating survey of the political and economic realities that may shape the next few decades."

Wall Street Journal



"Peter F. Drucker . . . sees no challenge that cannot be met by America and the 'have' nations of the world provided they have the flexibility to recognize that a new era is upon us."

Newsday



"The Age of Discontinuity is the kind of book that makes businessmen think thoughts they have never thought before.”

The New York Times



"Drucker argues his case brilliantly."

—David Broder, Washington Post
