If man is to survive, a fundamental transformation must take place in Western civilization. The question is, can man control himself and the technology he has created?

It is quite possible that the vital answers to survival in the twenty-first century are not going to come from the great nations that have ruled the world in our time but from the frontier countries which have the advantage of still being in search of their identity and their role. Australia could have a crucial function in determining man's future - the possibility for change is perhaps greater in this country than anywhere else.

In this wise and compassionate book a distinguished and humane scientist argues that there are solutions to man's dilemmas, but if we are to survive the next hundred years we must act now.
