Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Inventing the Future in an Age of Contingency, edited by Amber Narro, André Folloni, Andrea Pitasi and Massimiliano Ruzzeddu.

In a world where communication and language are not as divisive as they once were, we are experiencing a convergence unlike any other. Through technology and a broadening of our cultural understanding, we are opening doors and closing communication borders. While it is easier to adapt to and enter each other’s worlds, still we must navigate complex systems to understand operations within groups and organisations.

The chapters in this volume challenge readers to explore complexity theory and offer elements that support the continued and ever-growing need for its use.
