About political scientist Emmet John Huges, his biography and some of his predictions for the future of the world.


Emmet John Hughes, who is currently a political science professor at Rutgers University and a columnist for Newsweek, spent 20 years as a foreign correspondent for Time-Life and was a speech writer for President Eisenhower. He predicts dramatic changes in the world map over the course of the next few decades.

Past Predictions: Right--In 1974, Hughes said that the Sino-Soviet conflict would never explode into total war; that Great Britain would not throw in its lot with the U.S., but instead, would ally itself more closely with France, West Germany, and Italy; and that the communist satellite nations of Eastern Europe would not rise up in rebellion against the Soviet Union. To date, these prophecies have been borne out.

Future Predictions: For 2024

--In Asia, the 2 Vietnams will be united under a Communist regime, as will North and South Korea. Conversely, India's insuperable top-heaviness will eventually fragment that nation into several parts. Mainland China, of course, will engulf Taiwan, and then direct its quest for new conquests southward.

--Economic necessity will override patriotism and cause the nations of Western Europe to band together--if not under a single government, then certainly in a close politico-economic alliance.

--Quebec will secede from Canada and form an independent republic. The 3 prairie provinces--Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba--will likewise secede and become part of the U.S.
