WFSF has been developing a resource list of books about futures studies in several languages (English, Hebrew, Hungarian, Spanish and Portuguese, Swedish and Farsi). The English books cover the time period from the pre-1950s up to the present time.

The Futures Studies Bookshelf is a work-in-progress being developed as a resource for the WFSF membership and the wider community. It began as a call to the members to send in lists of their most highly recommended books in the field of futures studies and foresight.

Because of the large number of responses, including some in languages other than English, this compilation has the potential to become a substantial multi-lingual resource. As an initial step in categorising the large number of recommended futures books published in English, they are being placed into a time-line according to their date of publication.
