"The Iron Heel," adystopiannovel by American writer "Jack London," is generally considered to be "the earliest of the modern Dystopian." It chronicles the rise of anoligarchictyranny in the United States. It is arguably the novel in which Jack London'ssocialistviews are most explicitly on display. A forerunner ofsoft science fictionnovels and stories of the 1960s and '70s, the book stresses future changes in society and politics while paying much less attention to technological changes. The book is unusual among London's writings (and in the literature of the time in general) in being afirst-person narrativeof a woman protagonist written by a man. Much of the narrative is set in theSan Francisco Bay Area, including events inSan FranciscoandSonoma County."

About the Author:

John Griffith “Jack” London (January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire”, “An Odyssey of the North”, and “Love of Life”. He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen”, and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf. London was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
