Looking backward, 2000-1887 by Edward Bellamy( Book )

554 editions published between 1881 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 8,520 WorldCat member 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
Looking backward by Edward Bellamy( )

89 editions published between 1887 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two thousand, A.D. First published in 1888, Looking Backward was one of the most popular novels of its day. Translated into more than 20 languages, its utopian fantasy influenced such thinkers as John Dewey, Thorstein Veblen, Eugene V. Debs, and Norman Thomas. Writing from a 19th century perspective and poignantly critical of his own time, Bellamy advanced a remarkable vision of the future, including such daring predictions as the existence of radio, television, motion pictures, credit cards, and covered pedestrian malls. On the surface, the novel is the story of time-traveler Julian West, a young Bostonian who is put into a hypnotic sleep in the late 19th century, and awakens in the year 2000 in a socialist utopia. In conversations with the doctor who awakened him, he discovers a brilliantly realized vision of an ideal future, one that seemed unthinkable in his own century. Crime, war, personal animosity, and want are nonexistent. Equality of the sexes is a fact of life. In short, a messianic state of brotherly love is in effect. Entertaining, stimulating, and thought-provoking, Looking Backward, with its ingenious plot and appealing socialism, is a provocative study of human society as it is and as it might be

Great American political thinkers by Bernard Edward Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 1: "This volume presents a comprehensive survey of the major American political thinkers from the early seventeenth century to pre-Civil War days, when immigrants and settlers from disparate cultures united to form a new political community. The traditionalism of early New Englanders, the Revolution, the rebuilding of governmental authority, and the rise of mass democracy constituted the crucible in which America was shaped. Works by such theorists as Thomas Paine, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison captured the spirit of their age, the crises of their time, and the profound meaning of the American political experience."--Back cover
