9780451531162: Looking Backward: 2000-1887 (Signet Classics)

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

From the Back Cover:

Edward Bellamy’s Looking Backward: 2000-1887 (1888) is one of the most influential utopian novels in English. The narrative follows Julian West, who goes to sleep in Boston in 1887 and wakes in the year 2000 to find that the era of competitive capitalism is long over, replaced by an era of co-operation. Wealth is produced by an “industrial army” and every citizen receives the same wage.

This edition contains a rich selection of appendices, including excerpts from Bellamy’s Equality and other writings; contemporary responses (by William Morris, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and others); excerpts from utopian works by Morris and William Dean Howells; and an excerpt from Henry George’s Progress and Poverty.
