London, Jack: The Iron Heel. 19 Nov 2008

In the past I have posted several utopian novels (Augustine, Gillette, and others.) This is another. One person's utopia may be another's hell. Published in 1908, The Iron Heel was a departure from London's writings about what he knew and ventures into what he thought. Many critics have noted that this is the first exposition of London's socialist views coming several years before the Russian revolution (see Ten Days That Shook the World by John Reed.)

It predates 1984 by decades and describes how the world got to the state that 1984 describes. There are also many parallels to Gilette's work and to the current political situation in the US.
