9780451531162: Looking Backward: 2000-1887 (Signet Classics)

Edward Bellamy’s prophetic novel about a young Boston man who is mysteriously transported from the 19th to the 21st century—from a world of war and want to a world of peace and plenty. 

The year is 2000. The place: Utopian America. The hero: anyone who has ever longed for escape to a better life...

 
Translated into more than twenty languages, and the most widely read novel of its time, Looking Backward is more than a brilliant visionary’s view of the future. It is a blueprint of the “perfect society,” a guidebook that stimulated some of the greatest thinkers of our age. Today—in the very era it attempted to visualize—it is even more compelling than ever.

With an Introduction by Walter James Miller
And an Afterword by Eliot Fintushel

From the Back Cover:

Edward Bellamy's utopian novel about a nineteenth-century Bostonian who awakes after a sleep of more than one hundred years to find himself in the year 2000 in a world of near-perfect cooperation, harmony, and prosperity. The novel had an enormous impact at the time of its publication, setting in motion a wave of reform activity and creating a vogue for utopian novels that continued over the next three decades.
