Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Authors Digest: The World s Great Stories in Brief, Prepared by a Staff of Literary Experts, With the Assistance of Many Living Novelists This book passed rapidly through many editions. The social and economic reforms described i its pages inspired the establishment of several communities and the formation in 1888 of the Nationalist Party, devoted to plans of industrial reorganization. The author thus explains his purpose: Looking Backward, although in form a fanciful romance, is intended, in all seriousness, as a forecast, in accordance with the principles of evolution, of the next stage in the industrial and social development of humanity, especially in this country. All thoughtful men agree that the present aspect of society is portentous of great changes. The only question is, whether they will be for the better or for the worse. Those who believe in man s essential nobleness lean to the former view; those who believe in his essential baseness, to the latter. For my part, I hold to the former opinion. Looking Backward was written in the belief that the Golden Age lies before us, and not behind us, and is not far away. Our children will surely see it, and we, too, who are already men and omen, if we deserve it by our faith and by our works. On the thirtieth day of May - Decoration Day - 1887, the Bartlett family of Boston visited Mount Auburn cemetery to lay flowers on the grave of Edith Bartlett s brother, who had fallen in the Civil War. Julian West, a young and wealthy Bostonian, who as engaged to Edith, accompanied them and returned with the party. After dinner, reading in the evening paper of fresh strikes in the building trades, which would delay work upon the house he was preparing for his bride, he vehemently denounced the working classes and the increasing socialistic troubles. He took a tender farewell of Edith at an early hour, for, a victim to insomnia and having passed two sleepless nights, he wished to get a little sleep, as possible. He hastened to his ancestral home, now in an undesirable quarter, where ho lodge, attended by Sawyer, a faithful colored man.
