As a powerful work of speculative fiction, it sheds a critical light on society. In 'Brave New World Revisited'(1958), Huxley uses his knowledge of human relations to compare the modern-day world with the prophetic fantasy envisioned in his earlier utopic fiction, including threats to humanity, such as overpopulation, propaganda, & chemical persuasion. 340p.

Readers will find stellar essays on political assassination in America as well as a scathing review of the eviscerationof politics by pollsters and spin-doctors. Included are a perspicacious reassessment of Graham Greene & a riotous celebration of drinking & smoking, plus an unsparing rogues' gallery starring Henry Kissinger. Critical Resources, Index.

    With his unique fusion of erudition and wit, Hitchens addresses the most urgent issue of our time: the malignant force of religion in the world.

Hitchens tells the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with religion and describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason.
