Now more than ever: Aldous Huxley'sÂ enduring masterwork must be read and understood by anyone concerned with preserving the human spirit
"A masterpiece. ... One of the most prophetic dystopian works." âWall Street JournalÂ
Aldous Huxley'sÂ profoundlyÂ importantÂ classic of world literature,Â Brave New WorldÂ is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advancedÂ future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated,Â and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passivelyÂ upholdÂ an authoritarianÂ ruling orderâall at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls. âA genius [who] who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machineâ (The New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of historyâs keenest observers of human nature and civilization. Brave New World, his masterpiece, has enthralled and terrified millions of readers, and retains its urgentÂ relevance to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying work of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascismÂ during the 1930s, Brave New WorldÂ likewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine andÂ pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites.Â
"Aldous Huxley is the greatest 20th century writer in English." âChicago Tribune
