Brave New World... A book by Aldous Huxley...

« Les utopies apparaissent comme bien plus réalisables qu’on ne le croyait autrefois. Et nous nous trouvons actuellement devant une question bien autrement angoissante : comment éviter leur réalisation définitive ?… Les utopies sont réalisables. La vie marche vers les utopies. Et peut-être un siècle nouveau commence-t-il, un siècle où les intellectuels et la classe cultivée rêveront aux moyens d’éviter les utopies et de retourner à une société non utopique, moins parfaite et plus libre. » — Nicolas Berdiaeff

Back Cover of Brave New World:

"A fantasy of the future that sheds a blazing critical light on the present -- Considered to be Aldous Huxley's most enduring masterpiece."

"Aldous Huxley's tour de force, Brave New World is a darkly satiric vision of a "utopian" future -- where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment."

"As sparkling, as provocative, as brilliant . . . as impressive as the day it was published. . . . A work of art." -- Martin Green

"Chilling. . . . That he gave us the dark side of genetic engineering in 1932 is amazing." -- Providence Journal-Bulletin

"A sometimes appallingly accurate view of today's world." -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"It's time for everyone to read and reread Brave New World." -- Raleigh News & Observer
