When the novel Brave New World first appeared in 1932, its shocking analysis of a scientific dictatorship seemed a projection into the remote future. Here, in one of the most important and fascinating books of his career, Aldous Huxley uses his tremendous knowledge of human relations to compare the modern-day world with his prophetic fantasy. He scrutinizes threats to humanity, such as overpopulation, propaganda, and chemical persuasion, and explains why we have found it virtually impossible to avoid them. Brave New World Revisited is a trenchant plea that humankind should educate itself for freedom before it is too late.

    I won't be misunderstood if I'll call this book as one of the must read for everyone. It shows other possible future of the society. Society of always young old man and soma which can hide everything that isn't correct around you. Be aware.

    Провидческая книга о грядущем тоталитарном обществе потребления. Многое из того, о чем грезил автор в 1931-м году, уже давно стало реальностью. Страшно признать, что сбылись, в основном, самые худшие предсказания.
