Brave New World
Now more than ever: Aldous Huxley's permanent masterpiece must be read and understood by anyone concerned with the preservation of the human mind
"A masterpiece … one of the most prophetic dystopian works." –Wall Street Journal
Aldous Huxley's deeply important classic of world literature, Beautiful new world is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically advanced future in which humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated and pharmaceutically drugged to passively maintain an authoritarian regime – all at the expense of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps our souls. "A genius (who) who has spent his life decoding the advance of the machine" (The New Yorker) Huxley was a man of unparalleled talent: artist, spiritual seeker and one of the keenest observers of human nature and civilization in history. Beautiful new world, his masterpiece has intrigued and frightened millions of readers and continues to maintain his urgent importance, both as a warning sign for the beginning of the morning and as a thought-provoking and satisfying piece of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascism in the 1930s, Beautiful new world Also addresses a 21st century world characterized by mass entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, persuasiveness and the hidden influence of elites.
