Most widely held works by Sylvester Baxter
Looking backward, 2000-1887 by Edward Bellamy( Book )
24 editions published between 1887 and 1931 in English and held by 677 libraries worldwide
This is the America to which Julian West, a young Bostonian, awakens after more than a century of sleep. West's initial sense of wonder, his gradual acceptance of the new order and a new love, and Bellamy's wonderful prophetic inventions-electric lighting, shopping malls, credit cards, electronic broadcasting-ensured the mass popularity of this 1888 novel. But however rich in fantasy and romance, Looking Backward is a passionate attack on the social ills of nineteenth-century industrialism and a plea for social reform and moral renewal. In her introduction, Cecelia Tichi discusses how the novel echoes the anguish and hopes of its own age while it embodies a sustaining myth of the American literary tradition-that man's perfectibility is attainable in the New World
