The Iron Heel by Jack London - A Dystopian Novel - The Iron Heel is a dystopian novel by American writer Jack London, first published in 1908. Generally considered to be "the earliest of the modern Dystopian", it chronicles the rise of an oligarchic tyranny in the United States. It is arguably the novel in which Jack London's socialist views are most explicitly on display. A forerunner of soft science fiction novels and stories of the 1960s and 1970s, the book stresses future changes in society and politics while paying much less attention to technological changes. The book is unusual among London's writings (and in the literature of the time in general) in being a first-person narrative of a woman protagonist written by a man. Much of the narrative is set in the San Francisco Bay Area, including events in San Francisco and Sonoma County.

About the Author:

John Griffith London (born John Griffith Chaney) was an American author, journalist, and social activist who lived from 1876 to 1916. His works, all fiction, were always founded in some fact or idea which he then conveyed, making his books full of double meaning and offering deeper understanding for those able to see it.
