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. But what sort of language would we have the world speak, if we were told the miracle of Babel was presently to be reversed?
If I may take a daring image, a medi�val liberty, I would suppose that in this lonely place the Spirit of Creation spoke to us on this matter. �You are wise men,� that Spirit might say�and I, being a suspicious, touchy, over-earnest man for all my predisposition to plumpness, would instantly scent the irony (while my companion, I fancy, might even plume himself), �and to beget your wisdom is chiefly why the world was made.

A wonderful book!
Wells is one of my favorite writers. This didn't disappoint. It was different.
This version is error free. The other compaints must be for another version. My copy has a picture of the red book on it. Anyway, I liked this book, it was another good one by Wells.
