Anticipations Of The Reaction Of Mechanical And Scientific Progress Upon Human Life And Thought

By Herbert George Wells


This is Wells' first non-Fiction best-selling work, first serialised in 1901 in the magazines Fortnightly Review and North American Review. It contains his ideas of what the world will be like 100 years later, in the year 2000. It covers such topics as transportation systems, societies, urban growth, emerging languages, war, democracy, and public policy. Wells said he wrote this "to undermine and destroy the monarch, monogamy, faith in God and respectability, and the British Empire, all under the guise of a speculation about motor cars and electric heating."--(from a letter to Elizabeth Healy) H.G. Wells: Another Kind of Life (2010) by Michael Sherborne.
