    Abstract

    ALTHOUGH NOT NAMED in the title, this rich and erudite book continually circles around the utopian writings of H. G. Wells and his important role in the dual emergence of the modern, dynamic utopia and the rise of the dystopia at the end of the nineteenth century. Patrick Parrinder's book travels far and wide, to seventeenth-century telescopic and microscopic fancies, nineteenth-century British satirical and racial utopias of Morris, Hudson and Bulwer-Lytton, Kafka's "Metamorphosis," Francis Galton's eugenics and J. B. S. Haldane's rejection of negative eugenics, but it always comes back to H. G. Wells.
