"When Dr Philip Raven, an intellectual working for the League of Nations, dies in 1930 he leaves behind a powerful legacy, an unpublished dream book'. Inspired by visions he has experienced for many years, it appears to be a book written far into the future: a history of humanity from the date of his death up to 2105. The Shape of Things to Come provides this 'history of the future', an account that was in some ways remarkably prescient, predicting climatic disaster and sweeping cultural changes, including a Second World War, the rise of chemical warfare, and political instabilities in the Middle East." -- Back cover

The new Machiavelli by H. G Wells( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A successful author and liberal MP with a loving and benevolent wife, Richard Remington appears to be a man to envy. But underneath his superficial contentment, he is far from happy with either his marriage or the politics of his party. The New Machiavelli describes the disarray into which his life is thrown when he meets the young and beautiful Isabel Rivers and becomes tormented by desire. At first, he struggles to resist and remain focused upon his familiar political, personal, and social life. But, as he soon learns, it is harder than he could have imagined to turn his back on love. Based on Wells's own experiences, this is a vivid and unfailingly candid account of the damage wrought by a scandalous society affair and the overwhelming power of passion."--Back cover
