Huxley uses his erudite knowledge of human relations to compare our actual world with his prophetic fantasy of 1931. 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. -- New York Times Book ReviewWhen the novel Brave New World first appeared in 1932, its shocking analysis of a scientific dictatorship seemed a projection into the remote future. Here, in one of the most important and fascinating books of his career, Aldous Huxley uses his tremendous knowledge of human relations to compare the modern-day world with his prophetic fantasy. He scrutinizes threats to humanity, such as overpopulation, propaganda, and chemical persuasion, and explains why we have found it virtually impossible to avoid them. Brave New World Revisited is a trenchant plea that humankind should educate itself for freedom before it is too late. --Kirkus ReviewBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Aldous HuxleyPublisher: Harper PerennialPublished: 09/05/2006ISBN: 9780060898526Pages: 123Weight: 0.25lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.20w x 0.50dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 7104 / Brave New World RevisitedReading Level: 11.4 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 7
