    The Time Machine is H.G. Wells' warning of what will befall mankind if capitalism continues to exploit workers for the benefits of the rich. As the Time Traveler theorizes, the working class has been pushed underground for so long that it has evolved into a distinct, nocturnal species. The upper class has remained above ground, and their advanced civilization, stocked with amenities, has turned them into weak, lazy, and dependent creatures.

    Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific English writer of stories and novels and is frequently credited as being the father of science fiction. The Time Machine, first published in 1895, is possibly Wells' most famous work. It tells the story of the inventor of a vehicle which allows him to travel in time and his firsthand account of his adventures as he travels millions of years into the future, where mankind has evolved into something very different from the humans of the 19th century.

    In The Invisible Man, a scientist theorizes that if a person's refractive index is changed to exactly that of air his body does not absorb or reflect light, then he will not be visible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but cannot become visible again, becoming mentally unstable as a result. In The Time Machine, we follow the Time Traveller to the year 802,701 A.D.. He finds a golden race of small, soft, innocent people. But what is it that lurks in the dark shadows?

    The time traveler is on his way to a different world -- 800,000 years in the future. He finds humans called the Eloi living in simple luxury. They have become beautiful but meek, living on their safe, comfortable planet. The generations that have passed without challenge or adversity have dulled their minds. Underground machinery, built millennia ago, feeds and clothes these innocent creatures, and still functions perfectly. But who runs the machinery, and why are the Eloi afraid of the night?

    This 50th anniversary edition of Men, Machines, and Modern Times, though ultimately concerned with a positive alternative to an Orwellian 1984, offers an entertaining series of historical accounts taken from the 19th century to highlight a main theme: the nature of technological change, the fission brought about in society by such change, and society's reaction to that change.

    What does the future hold? The question is completely subjective to imagination, because no human will ever see what the future holds beyond their lifetime...or will they? The story begins with an inventor speaking to a group of men about the unbelievable time machine that he has built. The men scoff at this idea and do not believe his incredible tale. The inventor, wanting to prove his theory, produces a miniature time machine that disappears into thin air, to the amazement of all.

    For more than a hundred years, science-fiction writers around the world have captured our imaginations with speculations about journeys into the past or future. Countless novels, short stories, movies, and TV shows have used or adapted the theme of time travel. However, all of them owe a debt to Herbert George Wells. This, his first major novel, published in 1895, was the origin of the very concept of time travel. It is considered by many to be one of the greatest science-fiction novels of all time.
