Looking Backward

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

Set in Boston on December 26, 2000, but written before the turn of the nineteenth century, this classic Utopian novel is more significant and relevant than ever with its reappearance this millennium. Addressing moral and material concerns of late nineteenth century industrial America through romantic narrative, Bellamy suggests a fictionalized society in which war, poverty, and malice do not exist.

I am affraid, that author threw the baby out with the bath water. It is just negation of everything what was in his times around him. He didn't analyze what could be good and changed by evolution and what should be suitable change by revolution.He voted to throw everything away.
