FROM THE PUBLISHER - Originally written in 1936, two years before Capek’s death and three years before the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia, War with the Newts is considered by many to be Capek’s greatest book. Working in the ‘fantastic’ satiric tradition of Wells, Orwell, and Vonnegut, Capek chronicles the discovery of a colony of highly intelligent giant salamanders off the coast of an Indonesian island. Capek sardonically details all the reactions of the civilized world - from horror to skepticism, from intellectual fascination to mercantile opportunism - and the ultimate destruction from which it (and the newts) might not escape.
