Title: Brave New World Revisited
Author: Aldous Huxley
Publisher: Chatto and Winds
Publication Date: 1966
This book is in good condition for its age other than some minor signs of wear. The dust jacket is worn. There is an inscription on the free endpaper,
But life is short and information endless: nobody has time for everything. In practice we are generally forced to choose between an unduly brief exposition and no exposition at all. Abbreviation is a necessary evil and the abbreviator's business is to make the best of a job which, though intrinsically bad, is still better than nothing. He must learn to simplify, but not to the point of falsification. He must learn to concentrate upon the essentials of a situation, but without ignoring too many of reality's qualifying side issues. In this way he may be able to tell, not indeed the whole truth (for the whole truth about almost any important subject is incompatible with brevity), but considerably more than the dangerous quarter-truths and half-truths which have always been the current coin of thought.....when Brave New World was first published in 1931 people thought this version of the future was grotesque! Has more of it come true? This follow up to the original classic is a true discussion piece and food for thought!
