The Fourth Turning
By the authors that brought us Generations: The History of America's Future (a brilliant, imo, theory of generational cycles), this book expands on predictions for the next phase of the current cycle. I urge you to read these books, they're great. This web site provides some information about the book, discussion of related topics, and a monthly column on current events as they relate to the authors' theory.
You can also view more info on the book at Amazon.com.
To take a look at their previous books, more Amazon links below:
Generations: the History of America's Future, 1584 to 2069
The book you should probably read first. This lays out the whole theory, and it's a good history lesson, too.
13th Gen: Abort, Retry, Ignore, Fail?
This is the book that got me interested initially.
This is a nice collection of links to resources and utilities.
