Looking Backward - 2000-1887

Author(s): Edward Bellamy; Cecelia Tichi (Introduction by)


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 Miller
And an Afterword by Eliot Fintushel
