2nd Impression. [First Edition: 1947] From the cover: “Mr Huxley takes as his theme the evils resulting from the misapplication of modern technological progress. The enormous scientific advances of the past 50 years have been used primarily to concentrate economic and political power in the hands of a ruling minority, and have not been applied to the benefit of society in general. The resulting evils — corruption and despotism among the rulers, fear and lack of self-reliance among the masses, spiritual degradation among both — cannot be cured except by wholesale decentralisation. Mr Huxley puts forward cogent arguments for the decentralisation of power, property and production, and maintains that only thus can we avoid the prospect of universal servitude under a ruling oligarchy and of the collective suicide of wars and revolutions.”
