9780099458234: Brave New World Revisited
Rezension:

"A brilliant tour de force, Brave New World may be read as a grave warning of the pitfalls that await uncontrolled scientific advance. Full of barbed wit and malice-spiked frankness. Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling" ( Observer)

"Such ingenious wit, derisive logic and swiftness of expression, Huxley's resources of sardonic invention have never been more brilliantly displayed" ( The Times)

"A fantastical look at the world in the future which made me look differently at the present" (Katie Melua Observer)

"Lucid and well-reasoned...one is captivated by Huxley's knowledge and his even more extraordinary intelligence" ( Sunday Times)

Vom Verlag:

In his 1932 classic dystopian novel, "Brave New World", Aldous Huxley depicted a future society in thrall to science and regulated by sophisticated methods of social control. Nearly thirty years later in "Brave New World Revisited", Huxley checked the progress of his prophecies against reality and argued that many of his fictional fantasies had grown uncomfortably close to the truth. "Brave New World Revisited" includes Huxley's views on overpopulation, propaganda, advertising and government control, and is an urgent and powerful appeal for the defence of individualism still alarmingly relevant today.
