Description

Originally published in 1932, this outstanding work of literature is
more crucial and relevant today than ever before. Cloning, feel-good drugs,
anti-aging programs, and total social control through politics, programming,
and media—has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's
genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that
dawns in the year 632 AF (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit
a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity.

A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified
readers for generations, Brave New World
is both a warning to be heeded and thought-provoking yet satisfying
entertainment.
