Overview

In A Modern Utopia, two travelers fall into a space-warp and suddenly find themselves upon a Utopian Earth controlled by a single World Government.

Excerpt:

We permit ourselves also a free hand with all the apparatus of existence that man has, so to speak, made for himself, with houses, roads, clothing, canals, machinery, with laws, boundaries, conventions, and traditions, with schools, with literature and religious organisation, with creeds and customs, with everything, in fact, that it lies within man's power to alter.

That, indeed, is the cardinal assumption of all Utopian speculations old and new; the Republic and Laws of Plato, and More's Utopia, Howells' implicit Altruria, and Bellamy's future Boston, Comte's great Western Republic, Hertzka's Freeland, Cabet's Icaria, and Campanella's City of the Sun, are built, just as we shall build, upon that, upon the hypothesis of the complete emancipation of a community of men from tradition, from habits, from legal bonds, and that subtler servitude possessions entail.

    recommended if you are a Wells fan

    My only complaint is that the other reviewer can't be complained on. Perhaps if Rosie could spell then she wouldn't have a difficult time reading? To those who are Wells fans, this is going to be one you will like.

    Faulty scanning

    Unfortunately, I believe this book was not only scanned, the scanned images were translated into text by a computer. Any text that was illegible was then filled in by an educated guess by the machine. This led to bad translations and illegible print.

    Unreadable

    I can deal with imperfections but something is messed up with this copy. Maybe it was OK before but it is unreadable now.

    more from this reviewer

    Completly unreadable.

    So many typoes and misplaced sentances as to be impossible to read. For shame puting something like this out like this! Did anyone even look at this prior to publishing? Would give negative stars if i could. A disgrace to the work of wells. Once more, for shame.
