A Modern Utopia

A Modern Utopia

by H. G. Wells
Paperback
Publication Date: 14/12/2016
RRP  $17.99 $16.50
While traveling in the Swiss Alps, a pair of Englishmen who are in the midst of a discussion about the possible types of Utopias find themselves suddenly transported into a parallel world -- a planet seemingly identical to Earth, yet radically different, as they will learn. This Utopia exists as a single allied state, with a common language and perfect equality, under the rule of a voluntary order of nobility known as the Samurai. The travelers are mightily impressed by this harmonious society, but what will the Utopians think of their guests?
Better known for his formative works in science fiction, H. G. Wells also took a lively interest in politics and society. In this 1905 novel, the visionary author blends philosophical discussion with an imaginative narrative that offers a persuasive and ever-valid argument for his socialist ideals. This new edition of A Modern Utopia is enhanced with a series of atmospheric engravings from the original publication.

H. G. Wells

Herbert George "H. G." Wells (September 21, 1866-August 13, 1946) was an English author, best known for his work in the "speculative fiction" genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics, and social commentary.

Wells is sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction," along with Jules Verne. The War of the Worlds was written in the age of British colonialism, and Wells came up with the idea for the story while he and his brother were imagining what might happen if someone came to colonize England the way England had other countries.
