"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Dr Philip Raven, an intellectual working for the League of Nations, dies in 1930 he leaves behind a powerful legacy an unpublished dream book'.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

2 editions published in 1926 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As William Clissold arrives at his fifty-ninth birthday, he considers that his lot in life must surely be nearing its end. With this in mind, he turns his thoughts to look back on his life, to remembrances of things past, and sees fit to put pen to paper. The result is a revealing tale of the philosophies, religions and social systems he encountered through his life, and a fascinating insight into the mind of this extraordinary, but very typical man. And reluctant to remain in the past, Clissold shares his own plans of bringing order to the heady chaos of the world around him. In William Clissold, H.G. Wells has created a man molded by the sensibilities of his age
