The New World Order. Whether it is attainable, how it can be attained, and what sort of world at peace will have to be.

London: Secker and Warburg, 1940. [Futurology] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (21 x 15cm), pp.191 [1]. Publisher's grey cloth with red titles to spine. Top edge red. With the dust-jacket designed by William Kermode, priced at 6s. Light offsetting to endpapers, and a black ink ownership to flyleaf. Some marks and spots to cloth. Dust-jacket has benefited from some discreet restoration to the top and bottom edges. Very good. Billed as follow-up to 'The Fate of Homo Sapiens' (1939), Wells presents a more prescriptive manifesto for the resolution of the war-just-begun, and the changes which he believed would need to be made to ensure civilisation remained viable in the long-term. 'Man, "heir of the ages", is a demoralised spendthrift, in a state of galloping consumption, living on stimulants.'. Item #54282
