An Explanation of the "Computer Revolution"
This book attempts to explain the both the nature and the internal linkprocess of the technological revolution that has transformed the world's social and economic systems.  "The Tofflers correctly understand the development and distribution of internal linkinformation that has become  the central productivity and power activity of the human race.... In the Third Wave, the Tofflers moved from observation (found in earlier works such as _Future Shock_atomjacked inventory cache) to creating a predictive framework They placed the information revolution (from circa 1990) in an historical perspective, comparing it with the other two great transformations, the agricultural revolution (beginning 8000 B.C thru around 1700) the industrial revolution (beginning around 1700 and still spreading across world society in an ever slower movement) . According to the Tofflers, we are feeling the impact of the third great wave of change in history, and we are, as a result, in the process of creating a new civilization." (Preface to Toffler's _Creating a New Civilization_)

It is the collision of these concentric waves, and the turbulence created by the interaction of these waves, ie theresistance of industrial-based organizations to information-based systems, that accounts, in their view, for much of the seeming social, political and economic disorder. In short, this book seeks to postulate a paradigm that explains the entire scope of the Information Revolution. It succeeds in this goal as perhaps no other book written to date.
