H. G. Wells, a prolific science fiction writer, also wrote many non-fiction works that may be found interesting and/or pertinent for our current times. Could world events be following a script? Volume 2 of this Trio contains: World Brain - Essays and addresses written during 1936-38. Wells vision of a new, free, synthetic, authoritative, permanent World Encyclopaedia that could help world citizens make the best use of universal information resources and make the best contribution to world peace. Socialism and the Family - Two papers written in 1906, detailing the attitude of Modem Socialism to family life. Washington, the Riddle/Hope of Peace - These Twenty-Nine essays were published throughout 1922 as Wells observations during his visit to Washington, DC. In spite of an awareness of possible world catastrophe that underlay much of his earlier writings and flared up again in old age, H. G. Wells was regarded as the chief literary spokesman of the liberal optimism that preceded World War I. No other writer has caught so vividly the energy of this period, its adventurousness, its feeling of release from the conventions of Victorian thought and propriety. Wells’s influence was enormous, both on his own generation and on that which immediately followed it. None of his contemporaries did more to encourage revolt against Christian tenets and accepted codes of behaviour, especially as regards sex, in which, both in his books and in his personal life, he was a persistent advocate of an almost complete freedom. Though in many ways hasty, ill-tempered, and contradictory, Wells was undeviating and fearless in his efforts for social equality, world peace, and what he considered to be the future good of humanity.
