Brave New World
Brave New World is a novel written in 1931 by Aldous Huxley
and published in 1932. Set in London of AD 2540 (632 A.F.---"After
Ford"---in the book), the novel anticipates developments in reproductive
technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical
conditioning that combine to profoundly change society. Huxley answered
this book with a reassessment in an essay, Brave New World Revisited
(1958), and with Island (1962), his final novel.
