Written 27 years after the 1932 publication of "Brave New World", this book addresses the prophecies he made in that work, believing the far-fetched fantasies of his nightmare future to be turning too swiftly into reality. Examining overpopulation, mass communication, big business, centralized government, the effects of television and advertising, this work is Huxley's polemic against modern society.
