About the Book

Edward Bellamy, a journalist, and author from Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts, is the author of the utopian science fiction book Looking Backward: 2000-1887. Bellamy's novel tells the story of a young American who falls into a deep, hypnosis-induced sleep and wakes up 113 years later. In Looking Backward, Julian West is introduced to a dystopian society where everyone is equally smart and the wealth of the society is dispersed evenly. At age 45, everyone is eligible for full retirement benefits and has access to nearly rapid, internet-like delivery of their purchases. Bellamy also foresees the availability of sermons and music in the house through cable "telephone" (already commercialized only in 1890). For instance, he explains the new legal system in chapter 19. Crime has evolved into a medical problem, whereas most civil lawsuits have resulted in socialism. Atavism, a then-current theory, is used to explain crimes unrelated to inequality. For instance, he explains the new legal system in chapter 19. Crime has evolved into a medical problem, whereas most civil lawsuits have resulted in socialism. Atavism, a then-current theory, is used to explain crimes unrelated to inequality. In chapters 15 and 16, it is shown how a more libertarian socialist government may be able to give free, autonomous public art and news sources.

About Author

Edward Bellamy

American novelist, writer, and political activist Edward Bellamy (March 26, 1850 - May 22, 1898) is best known for his utopian novel Looking Backward. A large number of "Nationalist Clubs" were established as a result of Bellamy's optimistic outlook on a peaceful future. One of the 19th century's greatest financially successful works was his utopian masterpiece Looking Backward. Early in the 1890s, Bellamy founded a publication called The New Nation and started to promote joint action between the numerous Nationalist Clubs and the budding Populist Party. Edward Bellamy was born in Chicopee, Massachusetts, Bellamy studied for two semesters at Union College of Schenectady, New York. He briefly studied law but abandoned that field without ever practicing as a lawyer. Bellamy married Emma Augusta Sanderson in 1882 and had two children. At the age of 25, Bellamy developed tuberculosis, the disease that would ultimately kill him. He passed away when he was 48 years old.
