   schema:description "Bell's prophetic 1976 forecast of the Information Age and how it would radically alter the social structure. With a new introduction by Bell. In 1976, when Daniel Bell first published The Coming of Post-Industrial Society, he predicted a vastly different world-one that would rely upon an economics of information, as opposed to the economics of goods that had existed up to then. Bell argued that the new society would not displace the old one but rather overlay it in profound ways, much as industrialization continues to coexist with the agrarian sectors of our society. In Bell's prescient vision, the post-industrial society would include the birth and growth of a knowledge class, a change from goods to services, and changes in the role of women. All of these would be based upon an increasing dependence on science as a means of innovation; as a means of technical and social change. The Coming of Post-Industrial Society remains an important book for a whole new generation of politicians, economists, intellectuals, and students. --Publisher."@en ;
