Clean, tight, unmarked; light crease lower back inside corner of cover; otherwise absolute minimal wear; appears unread; Far in the future, the World controller have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing, and recreational sex and drugs, all of its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone in feeling discontent. Harbouring an unnatural desire for solitude, and a perverse distaste for the pleasures of compulsory promiscuity, Bernard has an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations, where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress... Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece. In 1958, nearly 30 years after the publication of his dystopian classic, Huxley checked the progress of his prophecies against reality and argued that many of his fictional fantasies had grown uncomfortably close the truth. Brave New World Revisited includes Huxley's views on overpopulation, propaganda, advertising, and government control, and is an urgent and powerful appeal for the defense of individualism that is still alarmingly relevant today.
