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.

    Over the past few decades, the irrepressibly opinionated Christopher Hitchens has criss-crossed the globe debating religious scholars, Catholic clergy, rabbis, and devout Muslims as well as Christians on the existence of God and the supposed morality of religion - appearances that have attracted thousands on both sides of 'whatever issue:' From U.S. policy in the Middle East to the death of Jerry Falwell to the sainthood of Mother Teresa, Hitchens is always armed with pithy discourse that is deeply grounded in a wide-ranging knowledge of literature, and the currency of world events. Drawn from Hitchens's many TV appearances, debates, lectures, interviews, articles, and books, this A-Z omnibus of 'Hitch-talk' tackles subjects alphabetically - from atheism and alcoholism to George Orwell and Bertrand Russell, from Islamofascism and Iraq to smoking and sex - and perfectly captures the wit and depth of one of the contemporary world's more terrifying rhetoricians, baying in his element. Martin Amis, in his foreword, writes 'In debate, no matter what the motion, I would back him against Cicero, against Demosthenes.' Case closed. Open the book! Christopher Hitchens passed away on December 15, 2011. 332p.
