    "Looking Backward" is a futuristic novel by Edward Bellamy. It tells the story of Julian West, a young American, who, towards the end of the 19th century, falls into a deep, hypnosis-induced sleep and wakes up one hundred and thirteen years later. He finds himself in the same location (Boston, Massachusetts), but in a totally changed world: it is the year 2000 and, while he was sleeping, the United States have been transformed into a socialist utopia.

    Edward Bellamy was an American socialist and author who had a penchant for utopian thinking and a passion for discussing a better world and the way in which can build one. Nowhere in Bellamy’s work is this more evident that in The New Nation. First published in 1981, The New Nation is an inspiring and beautifully crafted piece of writing that is at one political and emotionally driven. Bellamy writes of the sheer necessity to build a new nation or remodel the old one in a completely new way for the benefit of the people.
