In this “brilliantly written” book, the author of Brave New World reflects on his dystopian classic—and its echoes in the real world decades later (Kirkus Reviews).
Written almost thirty years after the publication of Aldous Huxley’s groundbreaking dystopian novel, Brave New World Revisited compares the “future” of 1958 with his vision of it from the early 1930s. Touching on subjects as diverse as world population, drugs, subliminal suggestion, and totalitarianism, these timeless essays provide a fascinating look at ideas of early science fiction in the context of the real world.
“It is a frightening experience, indeed, to discover how much of his satirical prediction of a distant future became reality in so short a time. . . . fascinating.” —The New York Times Book Review
