'Brave New World,' first published in 1932, presents Huxley's vision of the future in which, through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering, people are genetically designed to be passive and therefore consistently useful to the ruling class. 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.

Redefining the debate about religion in public life, Hitchens takes on the faithful, arguing eloquently to make the ultimate case against religion through a close & learned reading of the major religious texts. Citing the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with faith, Hitchens describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason, in which the heavens are replaced by the Hubble telescope's awesome view and the double helix replaces Moses and the burning bush. 307p.

  • Hitch-22: A Memoir

    By Christopher Hitchens

    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9780446540339
    • Publisher: Twelve
    • Published: June 2010
    One of the most noticed and debated public intellectuals of our time, despite decades on the public stage, Christopher Hitchens has rarely written of the private dimensions of his life - until now. The book is the candid,personal history of a complicated man: English-born and American by adoption, all atheist and partly Jewish, stalwartly bohemian (proudly flaunting 'drinking' along with 'disputation' as 'hobbies' in Who's Who), and rigorously intellectual. Here he discusses his famously unbending convictions, tracing the thread of principle that connects his opposition to war in Vietnam and his support for intervention in Iraq. Written in a mode that is anything but shy. Photos.

    The Parthenon Marbles (formerly known as the Elgin Marbles), designed and executed by Pheidias to adorn the Parthenon, are perhaps the greatest of all classical sculptures. In 1801, Lord Elgin, then ambassador to the Turkish government, had chunks of the frieze sawn off and shipped to England, where they were subsequently seized by Parliament and sold to the British Museum to help pay off Elgin's debts.This scandal, exacerbated by the inept handling of the scultpures by their self-appointed guardians, remains unresolved to this day. In his fierce, eloquent account of a shameful piece of British imperial history, Christopher Hitchens makes the moral, artistic, legal and political case for re-unifying the Parthenon frieze in Athens.The opening of the New Acropolis Museum emphatically trumps the British Museum's long-standing (if always questionable) objection that there is nowehere in Athens to house the Parthenon Marbles. With contributions by Nadine Gordimer and Professor Charalambos Bouras, The Parthenon Marbles will surely enbd all arguments about where these great treasures belong, and help bring a two-centuries-old disgrace to a just conclusion.
