Now more than ever: Aldous Huxley''s enduring masterwork must be read and understood by anyone concerned with preserving the human spirit

"A masterpiece. . . . One of the most prophetic dystopian works." —Wall Street Journal 

The beautifully designed Harper Perennial Deluxe Edition of Brave New World also includes Huxley''s essay, "Brave New World Revisited" and features a foreword by Christopher Hitchens

Aldous Huxley''s profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order—all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls. “A genius [who] who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine” (The New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of history’s keenest observers of human nature and civilization. 

Brave New World, his masterpiece, has enthralled and terrified millions of readers, and retains its urgent relevance to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as a thought-provoking, satisfying work of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascism during the 1930s, Brave New World likewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites. 

Aldous Huxley (1894–1963) is the author of the classic novelsBrave New World,Island,Eyeless in Gaza, andThe Genius and the Goddess, as well as such critically acclaimed nonfiction works asThe Perennial PhilosophyandThe Doors of Perception. Born in Surrey, England, and educated at Oxford, he died in Los Angeles, California...
