Looking Backward

Looking Backward

Edward Bellamy's prophetic novel about a young Boston man who is mysteriously transported from the 19th to the 21st century-from a world of war and want to a world of peace and plenty.  The year is 2000. The place: Utopian America. The hero: anyone who has ever longed for escape to a better life...   Translated into more than twenty languages, and the most widely read novel of its time, Looking Backward is more than a brilliant visionary's view of the future. It is a blueprint of the "perfect society," a guidebook that stimulated some of the greatest thinkers of our age. Today-in the very era it attempted to visualize-it is even more compelling than ever. With an Introduction by Walter James
