The Iron Heel by Jack London (ebook)

Description

Release Special Price

The Iron Heel is a dystopian novel by American writer Jack London, first published in 1908.

Generally considered to be "the earliest of the modern Dystopian, " it

chronicles the rise of an oligarchic tyranny in the United States. It

is arguably the novel in which Jack London's socialist views are most

explicitly on display. A forerunner of soft science fiction novels and

stories of the 1960s and 1970s, the book stresses future changes in

society and politics while paying much less attention to technological

changes.

Plot summary

The novel is based on the (fictional) "Everhard Manuscript" written by

Avis Everhard which she hid and which was subsequently found centuries

later. In addition, this novel has an introduction and series of

(often lengthy) footnotes written from the perspective of scholar

Anthony Meredith. Meredith writes from around 2600 AD or 419

B.O.M. (the Brotherhood of Man). Jack London thus writes at two

levels, often having Meredith condescendingly correcting the errors of

Everhard yet, at the same time, exposing the often incomplete

understanding of this distant future perspective.
