This is H. G. Wells' 1906 work, The Future in America. Within it, he explores America's history and its relation to the future. Wells argues that America has evolved from a society that requires individual self-sufficiency into something new, and that what worked - and was indeed necessary - in the past may not be practical in the future. A fascinating insight into America's past, present, and possible future, The Future in America is highly recommended for fans and collectors of Wells' work. Contents include: The Prophetic Habit Of Mind, Material Progress, New York, Growth Invincible, The Economic Process, Some Aspects Of American Wealth, Certain Workers, Corruption, The Immigrant, State-Blindness, Two Studies In Disappointment, The Tragedy Of Color, The Mind Of A Modern State, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). The Father of Science Fiction was also a staunch socialist, and his later works are increasingly political and didactic. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
