 This book includes:

  

Brave New World: Half a millennium from now, no matter what class of human you are bred to be-from the intellectual Alphas to the Epsilons who provide manual labor-you are a part of the efficient, well-oiled whole, nourished, secure, and blissfully serene thanks to the freely distributed drug soma. But when a man and woman journey beyond the confines of their ordered life to where the "savages" reside, and bring back two outsiders, the cracks begin to show…Named as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the twentieth century by the Modern Library, Brave New World is one of the first truly dystopian novels, a remarkable depiction of the conflict between progress and the human spirit as relevant, if not more so, today than when it was written.

  

Brave New World Revisited: Nearly thirty years after the publication of his groundbreaking novel, Huxley composed this collection of essays comparing the "future" of 1958 with his vision of it from the early 1930s. Touching on subjects as diverse as world population, drugs, subliminal suggestion, and totalitarianism, it provides a fascinating look at ideas of early science fiction in the context of the real world.
