Profiles of the Future, a collection of essays by one of the world's most renowned writers of science and science fiction, originally appeared in 1962. The theme was one of ultimate possibilities, rather than achievements to be expected in the near future, and so even the remarkable events of the last thirty years have dated it very little.
Now Arthur Clarke has gone over his essays, which were written over a three-year period from 1959-1961, making corrections and comments where necessary in order to bring them right up to date, and discussing where he has been right or wrong in his predictions.
