Originally published: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1932.
Summary, etc.: Set in the London of AD 2540 (632 A.F. in the book), Huxley's novel anticipates developments in reproductive technology and sleep-learning that combine to change society. He describes a futuristic, controlled community with utopian overtones, in which the characters are completely subdued and enslaved by a small ruling group that wields the unrestrained power of science.
