About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Annotated edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. *This Book is annotated (it contains a detailed biography of the author). *An active Table of Contents has been added by the publisher for a better customer experience. *This book has been checked and corrected for spelling errors. H.G. Wells wrote this in 1921 as basically a series of lectures he planned to give in America on how the future of education should go. In his present, Wells found the educational system deplorable. He states in the last part of the book that ill health prevented these lectures, and also hampered what I assumed to be the editing of the book. That given, he probably shouldn't have published it, but as an author the urge to publish a major writing, no matter how flawed, can be irresistible. The substance of the book is an excruciatingly detailed and rather pedantic treatise on how to fix, not only education, but civilization itself, although his greatest concentration was on education. It's a secret to only a few perhaps, that Wells favored Socialism over Capitalism, and his urge to control the "masses" is evident here. Seller Inventory # APC9781718717787

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The present outlook of human affairs is one that admits of broad generalizations and that seems to require broad generalizations. We are in one of those phases of experience which become cardinal in history. A series of immense and tragic events have shattered the self-complacency and challenged the will and intelligence of mankind. That easy general forward movement of human affairs which for several generations had seemed to justify the persuasion of a necessary and invincible progress, progress towards greater powers, greater happiness, and a continual enlargement of life, has been checked violently and perhaps arrested altogether. The spectacular catastrophe of the Great War has revealed an accumulation of destructive forces in our outwardly prosperous society, of which few of us had dreamt; and it has also revealed a profound incapacity to deal with and restrain these forces. The two years of want, confusion, and indecision [Pg 2]that have followed the Great War in Europe and Asia, and the uncertainties that have disturbed life even in the comparatively untouched American world, seem to many watchful minds even more ominous to our social order than the war itself. What is happening to our race? they ask. Did the prosperities and confident hopes with which the twentieth century opened, mark nothing more than a culmination of fortuitous good luck? Has the cycle of prosperity and progress closed? To what will this staggering and blundering, the hatreds and mischievous adventures of the present time, bring us? Is the world in the opening of long centuries of confusion and disaster such as ended the Western Roman Empire in Europe or the Han prosperity in China? And if so, will the debacle extend to America? Or is the American (and Pacific?) system still sufficiently removed and still sufficiently autonomous to maintain a progressive movement of its own if the Old World collapse?.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Annotated edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. *This Book is annotated (it contains a detailed biography of the author). *An active Table of Contents has been added by the publisher for a better customer experience. *This book has been checked and corrected for spelling errors. H.G. Wells wrote this in 1921 as basically a series of lectures he planned to give in America on how the future of education should go. In his present, Wells found the educational system deplorable. He states in the last part of the book that ill health prevented these lectures, and also hampered what I assumed to be the editing of the book. That given, he probably shouldn't have published it, but as an author the urge to publish a major writing, no matter how flawed, can be irresistible. The substance of the book is an excruciatingly detailed and rather pedantic treatise on how to fix, not only education, but civilization itself, although his greatest concentration was on education. It's a secret to only a few perhaps, that Wells favored Socialism over Capitalism, and his urge to control the "masses" is evident here. Seller Inventory # APC9781718717787

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The present outlook of human affairs is one that admits of broad generalizations and that seems to require broad generalizations. We are in one of those phases of experience which become cardinal in history. A series of immense and tragic events have shattered the self-complacency and challenged the will and intelligence of mankind. That easy general forward movement of human affairs which for several generations had seemed to justify the persuasion of a necessary and invincible progress, progress towards greater powers, greater happiness, and a continual enlargement of life, has been checked violently and perhaps arrested altogether. The spectacular catastrophe of the Great War has revealed an accumulation of destructive forces in our outwardly prosperous society, of which few of us had dreamt; and it has also revealed a profound incapacity to deal with and restrain these forces. The two years of want, confusion, and indecision [Pg 2]that have followed the Great War in Europe and Asia, and the uncertainties that have disturbed life even in the comparatively untouched American world, seem to many watchful minds even more ominous to our social order than the war itself. What is happening to our race? they ask. Did the prosperities and confident hopes with which the twentieth century opened, mark nothing more than a culmination of fortuitous good luck? Has the cycle of prosperity and progress closed? To what will this staggering and blundering, the hatreds and mischievous adventures of the present time, bring us? Is the world in the opening of long centuries of confusion and disaster such as ended the Western Roman Empire in Europe or the Han prosperity in China? And if so, will the debacle extend to America? Or is the American (and Pacific?) system still sufficiently removed and still sufficiently autonomous to maintain a progressive movement of its own if the Old World collapse?.

About this Item: Book Tree,US, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. An extremely important philosophical and political book which concerned people throughout the world, include world leaders, should pay attention to. Wells was a visionary and genius who knew the strengths and weaknesses of men's minds and the proclivities of human nature. He could see where the world needed to be going immediately after the devastation of World War I and, in effect, where it still needs to be going today in order to thrive. He predicts for the future how a political reorganization must take place with the world as a unity, and how the general masses lack any will whatsoever to make it happen. Chapters include The Probable Future of Mankind, The Project of a World State, The Bible of Civilization, The Schooling of the World, and more. Seller Inventory # AAV9781585092741
