'Brave New World': Contexts and Legacies

Full Product Description

This collection of essays provides new readings of Huxley's classic dystopian satire, Brave New World (1932). Leading international scholars consider from new angles the historical contexts in which the book was written and the cultural legacies in which it looms large. The volume affirms Huxley's prescient critiques of modernity and his continuing relevance to debates about political power, art, and the vexed relationship between nature and humankind. Individual chapters explore connections between Brave New World and the nature of utopia, the 1930s American Technocracy movement, education and social control, pleasure, reproduction, futurology, inter-war periodical networks, motherhood, ethics and the Anthropocene, islands, and the moral life. The volume also includes a 'Foreword' written by David Bradshaw, one of the world's top Huxley scholars. Timely and consistently illuminating, this collection is essential reading for students, critics, and Huxley enthusiasts alike.

'Brave New World': Contexts and Legacies was published by Palgrave Macmillan in May 2016. The ISBN for 'Brave New World': Contexts and Legacies is 9781137445407.
