Looking backward, 2000-1887 by Edward Bellamy( Book )

640 editions published between 1881 and 2021 in 6 languages and held by 9,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the America to which Julian West, a young Bostonian, awakens after more than a century of sleep. West's initial sense of wonder, his gradual acceptance of the new order and a new love, and Bellamy's wonderful prophetic inventions--electric lighting, shopping malls, credit cards, electronic broadcasting--ensured the mass popularity of this 1888 novel. But however rich in fantasy and romance, Looking Backward is a passionate attack on the social ills of nineteenth-century industrialism and a plea for social reform and moral renewal
Looking backward by Edward Bellamy( )

86 editions published between 1887 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two thousand, A.D. First published in 1888, Looking Backward was one of the most popular novels of its day. Translated into more than 20 languages, its utopian fantasy influenced such thinkers as John Dewey, Thorstein Veblen, Eugene V. Debs, and Norman Thomas. Writing from a 19th century perspective and poignantly critical of his own time, Bellamy advanced a remarkable vision of the future, including such daring predictions as the existence of radio, television, motion pictures, credit cards, and covered pedestrian malls. On the surface, the novel is the story of time-traveler Julian West, a young Bostonian who is put into a hypnotic sleep in the late 19th century, and awakens in the year 2000 in a socialist utopia. In conversations with the doctor who awakened him, he discovers a brilliantly realized vision of an ideal future, one that seemed unthinkable in his own century. Crime, war, personal animosity, and want are nonexistent. Equality of the sexes is a fact of life. In short, a messianic state of brotherly love is in effect. Entertaining, stimulating, and thought-provoking, Looking Backward, with its ingenious plot and appealing socialism, is a provocative study of human society as it is and as it might be

In the aftermath of the Revolutionary War, America remained very volatile.

31 editions published between 1887 and 2019 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What strikes readers most about Edward Bellamy's classic science fiction novel are the prognostications the author makes for the future. 'Looking Backward: 2000-1887' was published in 1888, and has stayed on the pop culture landscape for over 100 years, thanks in no small part to its imagining of debit cards (called credit cards in the book) and instantaneous delivery of goods, not unlike the concept behind Amazon's still developing same-day service. 'Looking Backward' caused quite a sensation in its own time, too, drawing a mix of positive and negative responses by dozens of contemporary writers. --Page 4 of cover
