The book, Brave New World is a dystopian novel written by British author Aldous Huxley in 1931  and was published in 1932. It is mainly set in a futuristic World State of citizens who are genetically modified and are living in an intelligence-based social hierarchy.

The novel anticipates huge scientific developments in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, classical mind-conditioning, and psychological manipulation, all of which are combined to establish a utopian society that goes challenged only by a single outsider. In 1958, in a later essay, Brave New World Revisited, Huxley reassesses the book, Brave New World Revisited and finally with his novel Island (1962).

The attached video interview is most entertaining as it discloses several characteristics of the author’s psyche’, and how he arrived at several of his scientifically based assumptions. Although Huxley’s novel still sits on Amazon’s Bestseller list fetching a great price, I have been able to find a downloadable, unabridged ebook version at no cost to anyone who would like to find out more about this amazing person’s writings.


* NOTE: In 1999, the Modern Library ranked Brave New World fifth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.[2] In 2003, Robert McCrum writing for The Observer included Brave New World chronologically at number 53 in “the top 100 greatest novels of all time”,[3] and the novel was listed at number 87 on the BBC’s survey The Big Read.[4]
