Now more than ever: Aldous Huxley'senduring "masterpiece ... one of the most prophetic dystopian works of the 20th century" (Wall Street Journal)must be read and understood by anyone concerned with preserving the human spirit in the face of our "brave new world"

Aldous Huxley'sprofoundlyimportantclassic of world literature,Brave New Worldis a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advancedfuture where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated,and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passivelyupholdan authoritarianruling order--all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls. A genius [who] who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine (The New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of historys keenest observers of human nature and civilization. Brave New World, his masterpiece, has enthralled and terrified millions of readers, and retains its urgentrelevance to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying work of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascismduring the 1930s, Brave New Worldlikewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine andpharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites.
