  • "Prophecies on the future of mankind, which may perhaps come to pass."
  • "First published in 1932. First Perennial Classics edition published in 1998."
  • "A fantasy of the future that sheds a blazing critical light on the present--considered to be Aldous Huxley's most enduring masterpiece. Mr. Huxley is eloquent in his declaration of an artist's faith in man, and it is his eloquence, bitter in attack, noble in defense, that, when one has closed the book, one remembers. A Fantastic racy narrative, full of much excellent satire and literary horseplay. It is as sparkling, provocative, as brilliant, in the appropriate sense, as impressive ads the day it was published. This is in part because its prophetic voice has remained surprisingly contemporary, both in its particular forecasts and in its general tone of semiserious alarm. But it is much more because the book succeeds as a work of art. This is surely Huxley's best book."
  • ""Community, Identity, Stability" is the motto of Aldous Huxley's utopian World State. Here everyone consumes daily grams of soma, to fight depression, babies are born in laboratories, and the most popular form of entertainment is a "Feelie," a movie that stimulates the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Though there is no violence and everyone is provided for, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and senses his relationship with a young women has the potential to be much more than the confines of their existence allow."
  • "Úchvatný obraz enormního civilizačního úsilí, které ve snaze zajistit maximální štěstí umělými prostředky vymycuje veškerý cit a zdokonaluje se pouze v čistě laboratorním zajišťování produkce lidských bytostí a ve vědecké ochraně člověkovy fyzické konstituce. Protiklad k takto okleštěnému a úděsně jednostrannému světu v této románové science fiction tvoří rezervace "divochů", kde zůstávají zachovány lidské instinkty a původní citová oblast člověka. Vylíčení dramatického střetnutí Divocha s onou nadměrnou civilizací je dokladem autorova mistrného spisovatelského umění a myšlenkového bohatství."

  • "In the end, it was Aldous Huxley, not George Orwell (whom Huxley taught at Eton), whose vision of the future had the touch of prophecy. The modern world did not collapse into the cold, damp totalitarian hell Orwell described in his 1948 novel 1984. What has happened is closer to Huxleyâ s vision of the future in his astonishing 1931 novel Brave New World - a world of tomorrow in which capitalist civilization has been reconstituted through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering, where the people are genetically designed to be passive, consistently useful to the ruling class."@en
  • "Aldous Huxley's tour de force, Brave New World is a darkly satiric vision of a "utopian" future?where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment."@en

  • "Huxley's classic novel describes a future society modeled on genetic and psychological control, and devoid of individual freedom. In his nonfiction follow-up, Huxley examines advances in mind control methods, brainwashing, and propaganda, and their probable effects on society."
  • "Un chef-d'oeuvre de la littérature d'anticipation écrit en 1931 et dans lequel A. Huxley montre non pas le progrès de la science en tant que tel, mais le progrès de la science en tant qu'il affecte les individus humains."

  • "Towering classic of dystopian satire, BRAVE NEW WORLD is a brilliant and terrifying vision of a soulless society--and of one man who discovers the human costs of mindless conformity. Hundreds of years in the future, the World Controllers have created an ideal civilization. Its members, shaped by genetic engineering and behavioral conditioning, are productive and content in roles they have been assigned at conception. Government-sanctioned drugs and recreational sex ensure that everyone is a happy, unquestioning consumer; messy emotions have been anesthetized and private attachments are considered obscene. Only Bernard Marx is discontented, developing an unnatural desire for solitude and a distaste for compulsory promiscuity. When he brings back a young man from one of the few remaining Savage Reservations, where the old unenlightened ways still continue, he unleashes a dramatic clash of cultures that will force him to consider whether freedom, dignity, and individuality are worth suffering for."
  • "The astonishing novel Brave New World, originally published in 1932, presents Aldous Huxley's legendary vision of a world of tomorrow utterly transformed. In Huxley's darkly satiric yet chillingly prescient imagining of a "utopian" future, humans are genetically designed and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded and as a thought-provoking yet satisfying entertainment. This deluxe edition also includes the nonfiction work "Brave New World Revisited," "a thought-jabbing, terrifying book" (Chicago Tribune), first published in 1958. It is a fascinating essay in which Huxley compares the modern-day world with his prophetic fantasy envisioned in Brave New World. He scrutinizes threats to humanity such as overpopulation, propaganda, and chemical persuasion, and explains why we have found it virtually impossible to avoid them. With a Foreword by Christopher Hitchens."@en
  • "Satire of mechanized Utopia built around principles of Community, Identity, and Stability."
  • "A satire describing a scientific and industrialized utopian world."@en
  • "Widely regarded as one of the great classic examples of dystopian fiction (along with Orwell's 1984 is a chilling tale of a world where humanity has given up love, art, freedom, and even choice, all in the name of stability and happiness. This stability is rocked when the long-lost son of one of their highest caste is found living on a savage reservation. Devoid of the careful subliminal education that all people normally receive, the savage stands as a contradiction to everything that society values. His presence in their midst forces others to question these same values, and threatens to change their lives forever.

  • "Huxley's terrifying vision of a controlled and emotionless future "Utopian" society is truly startling in its prediction of modern scientific and cultural phenomena, including test-tube babies and rampant drug abuse."@en
  • ""Voici près d'un siècle, dans d'étourdissantes visions, Aldous Huxley imagine une civilisation future dans ses rouages les plus surprenants : un État mondial, parfaitement hiérarchisé, a cantonné les derniers humains 'sauvages' dans des réserves. La culture in vitro des fœtus a engendré le règne des 'Alphas', génétiquement déterminés à être l'élite dirigeante. Les castes inférieures, elles, sont conditionnées pour se satisfaire pleinement de leur sort. Dans cette société où le bonheur est loi, famille, monogamie, sentiments sont bannis. Le meilleur des mondes est possible. Aujourd'hui, il nous paraît même familier..." [Source : rabat de couv.]."
  • ""Huxley's bleak future prophesized in Brave New World was a capitalist civilization which had been reconstituted through scientific and psychological engineering, a world in which people are genetically designed to be passive and useful to the ruling class. Satirical and disturbing, Brave New World is set some 600 years ahead, in "this year of stability, A.F. 632"--the A.F. standing for After Ford, meaning the godlike Henry Ford. "Community, Identity, Stability," is the motto. Reproduction is controlled through genetic engineering, and people are bred into a rigid class system. As they mature, they are conditioned to be happy with the roles that society has created for them. The rest of their lives are devoted to the pursuit of pleasure through sex, recreational sports, the getting and having of material possessions, and taking a drug called Soma. Concepts such as family, freedom, love, and culture are considered grotesque. Against this backdrop, a young man known as John the Savage is brought to London from the remote desert of New Mexico. What he sees in the new civilization a "brave new world" (quoting Shakespeare's The Tempest). However, ultimately, John challenges the basic premise of this society in an act that threatens and fascinates its citizens. Huxley uses his entire prowess to throw the idea of utopia into reverse, presenting us what is known as the "dystopian" novel. When Brave New World was written (1931), neither Hitler nor Stalin had risen to power. Huxley saw the enduring threat to society from the dark side of scientific and social progress, and mankind's increasing appetite for simple amusement. Brave New World is a work that indicts the idea of progress for progress sake and is backed up with force and reason."--Amazon.com"@en

Aldous Huxley's important and yet flawed novel on humanity's future raises stark questions about our future destination which we have yet to find answers to."@en
