Within “New Worlds For Old”, H. G. Wells explores the possible future of Socialism, advocating replacing a social system based on Private Ownership with one based on “the spirit of the service”—which he maintains would be both more productive and just. He also spends several chapters discussing the history of Socialism and common objections. A fascinating book highly recommended for those with an interest in socialism and H. G. Wells. Contents include: “The Good Will In Man”, “The Fundamental Idea Of Socialism”, “The First Main Generalization Of Socialism”, “The Second Main Generalization Of Socialism”, “The Spirit Of Gain And The Spirit Of Service”, “Would Socialism Destroy The Home?”, “Would Modern Socialism Abolish All Property?”, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
