Publisher Comments:

The hero is anyone who has ever longed for escape to a better life. The time is the year 2000. The place is a Utopian America. This is the backdrop for Edward Bellamy's prophetic novel about a young Boston gentleman who is mysteriously transported from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century — from a world of war and want to a world of peace and plenty. 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. John Dewey, Charles Beard, and Edward Weeks, in separate surveys conducted in 1935, listed Edward Bellamy's novel as the most influential work written by an American in the preceding fifty years. Today — in the very era it attempted to visualize — it is even more compelling than ever.

Synopsis:

This classic novel about a young Boston gentleman who is mysteriously transported from the 19th to the 21st century to a peaceful world includes an Introduction by Walter James Miller, an updated Afterword for the year 2000, a Bibliography, and further reading section.
