Brave New World Revisited.


Item Number: 96262

London: Chatto & Windus, 1959.

First edition of Huxley’s essay revisiting the premises of his iconic dystopian and prophetic novel, published 28 years earlier, and how this vision has come to fruition. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by John Woodcock.

Published 28 years after Huxley’s nightmarish masterpiece, Brave New World Revisited contains a concise analysis of how the author's grotesque vision of the future has, in many ways, already come to fruition. Huxley examines the ways in which Big Business and political propaganda have already established a "psychological slave trade" in addition to many other "Brave New World techniques" which increasingly threaten the freedom of the individual. Chapters include Propaganda in a Democratic Society, The Arts of Selling, Brainwashing, Chemical Persuasion, Hypnopaedia, and Education For Freedom.
