Product Description
Julian West, a feckless aristocrat living in Boston in 1887, plunges into a deep hypnotic sleep. When he wakes up in the year 2000, America has been turned into a rigorously centralized democratic society in which everything is controlled by a humane and efficient state. In little more than a hundred years, the horrors of nineteenth-century capitalism have been all but forgotten. Broad streets have replaced the squalid slums of Boston, and technological inventions have transformed people's everyday lives. Exiled from the past, West excitedly settles into the ideal society of the future, while still fearing that he has dreamt up his experiences as a time traveller.
Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward is a thunderous indictment of industrial capitalism and a resplendent vision of life in a socialist utopia. Matthew Beaumont's lively edition explores the political and psychological peculiarities of this celebrated utopian fiction. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Edward Bellamy biography by Sylvia E. Bowman
This is a biography of Edward Bellamy by Sylvia E. Bowman. It provides lots of little-known information detailing how Edward Bellmay's scheme for an "industrial army" influenced WWII, and the Wholecost (of which the Holocaust was a part): the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, 60 million people slaughtered; the People's Republic of China, 50 million; and the National Socialist German Workers' Party, 20 million. The book provides a lot of support for the warning that Socialists are nuclear bombs, and socialism is nuclear war. Another author, Arthur Lipow, states that "Bellamy's authoritarian socialist views were an historical precursor of totalitarian collectivist ideological currents."

This book could use some updating about new discoveries. American socialists (e.g. Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy teamed with the Theosophical Society and Freemasons) also bear some blame for the notorious symbol used by the National Socialist German Workers Party.

The same symbol was used by the Theosophical Society during the time when the Bellamys, Freemasons and the Theosophical Society worked together. They also helped spread the stiff arm salute via the Pledge of Allegiance at their meetings.

The symbol was used as alphabetical symbolism for socialism, and adopted later by German socialists as their flag symbol. Although an ancient symbol, was altered for use as overlapping S-letters for 'socialism.' It was deliberately turned 45 degrees counter clockwise and always oriented in the S-direction. Similar alphabetic symbolism is still visible as Volkswagen VW logos.

American Socialists also created the stiff-arm salute of German socialism. The early Pledge of Allegiance (created by Francis Bellamy in 1892) used a straight arm salute, not the modern hand over the heart.

Edward Bellamy's book "Looking Backward" was an international bestseller that launched the nationalism movement worldwide. Edward's book was translated into every major language, including German. They wanted government to take over all schools and impose robotic chanting to flags. The Pledge's early right-arm salute was not an ancient Roman salute, and the 'ancient Roman salute' myth came from the Pledge.

All of the above are modern discoveries by the USA's leading authority on the Pledge of Allegiance, the author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets." People were persecuted for refusing to perform robotic chanting to the national flag at the same time in the USA and Germany (to the American flag, and to the German symbol flag). ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Obama Blueprint?
I happened across this book while reading "the politically incorrect guide to the 60's".

It was noted as a utopian fantasy where the government solves all problems, spreads the wealth around, and all corporations and capitalists are evil.

Classic Marxism and typical liberal fantasy!

1-0 out of 5 stars A mystery -- that it is still in print
It is difficult to understand how "Looking Backward" attained its status as one of the canonical, if mostly unread, American books of the late 19th century, along with "How the Other Half Lives" or "Huckleberry Finn."

Presumably it got a lot of attention when it was published, but so did the lectures of John Fiske, and 75 years later no one was mentioning Fiske to high school students.

Looking backward at "Looking Backward," it is astonishing to note that there is no mention of Negroes and just barely any of immigrants -- this on the eve of the birth of Jim Crow.

I am tempted to call it a Unitarian book because it is very much about the fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of man and the neighborhood of Boston. However, it is resolutely national. Everything in it is about how the nation by 2000 has taken over the direction of production and distribution and done away with not only money, but also spitefulness, sexual jealousy and claims of blood.

It is no excuse for Bellamy that Veblen was yet unknown. He was writing in Boston, where Mayflower descendence was worth its weight in gold.

The bloody shirt was being waved to effect at the time, too, and there is nothing here to explain how links to the Society of the Cincinnati or the GAR were eroded. In fact, the evolution of the 20th century is very much a black box in "Looking Backward," except that it occurred with less bloodshed than the change of government in a minor state.

The whole tone is strange. It is all about Bostonians and Americans, but the word America does not appear. The proper Bostonians, then very conscious of their role in foisting democracy in the form of manhood suffrage on the world, are said to have given up democracy without a fight. Strange.

It is no fault of Bellamy's that he could not foretell the disappearance of the horse, but even taken as a vision, he does a much poorer job than Jules Verne. The editors of the Applewood edition ("publishers of America's living past") try to make something of the fact that Bellamy introduced the term "credit card," but his credit cards had nothing to do with ours, and in fact he is relentlessly anti-credit.

As an analysis of the ills of his time, Bellamy is pretty much a damp squib. About the only trenchant observation he makes is that "interest on investments was a species of tax in perpetuity upon the product of those engaged in industry." If he had said "land" instead of "investments," he would have been close to the insights of Henry George, writing at the same time.

As a prophet he is a wet blanket. His hatred of individualism -- never exactly defined -- is complete, but one doubts whether even the resentful proletarians of his turbulent era would have welcomed a future based on "the strictest discipline in the army of labor."

Bellamy would have loved Mussolini.

As for the book as a book, he chose to cast it in the form of a romantic novel. It is perhaps the most tedious romantic novel ever written, no small accomplishment. "Looking Backward" manages to be as precious, stilted and inhuman as the best of Henry James.

It amazes me that I got through it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting read
An interesting read for dystopina literature.Maybe a bit dated to teach today, but is thought provoking and will drive discussion as a comparison piece.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Episode Ever
The reviewer who said that this is not really a novel was spot on. This is little more than a Utopian description of what effective socialism might look like sandwiched within a VERY weak story line. The ideas expressed in this book not only defy credulity, but they are now (Post-Stalin) historically discredited. The problem with the scheme laid out in this book is very simple--those who, for whatever reason, do not wish to go along with the system must ultimately be imprisoned and/or re-educated. True socialism cannot be implemented without the gulag. This book might be worth a read if for no other reason than to understand the socialist mindset. However, it should be taken with a healthy dose of Animal Farm, 1984, and especially Darkness at Noon because that is where this path ultimately leads.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ideal Enlightenment
For the folk that are still swaiting the flyng car, this 1887 best seller captures the earlier dreams of mankind, and places a citizen of Victorian England into a future society that is scary and reassuring at the same time.This book generated clubs in the 1880s in many American cities where middlel class citizens would gather and discuss the problems of industrial revolution, and dream of the ideal better life.It is good historic read,and forecasted the world we still have not achieved. ...
