In February 2108, the New Zealand Rediscovery Expedition reaches California at last.

Ape and Essence is Huxley's vision of the ruin of humanity, told with all his knowledge and imaginative genius.

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2005. soft. Book Condition: New. In February 2108, the New Zealand Rediscovery Expedition reaches California at last; although it is more than a century since the world has been devastated by nuclear war, the blight of radiation still gnaws away at the survivors. The travelers expected to find physical destruction, but they are quite unprepared for their encounter with the new dominant species, warlike baboons who revile what remains of human civilization. A chilling response to the burgeoning Cold War, Aldous Huxley's 1948 novel presents a considerably more brutal and surreal dystopia than the one he envisioned in Brave New World."Clever, brutal, thoughtful, original. [A] vision of a still-possible future."—Anthony Burgess 153. Bookseller Inventory # 64326
