Upton Sinclair's fictional vision, created in 1907, explores the state of society at the end of the millennium. Illustrations throughout.
From the Publisher:
In 1907, Upton Sinclair looked forward 93 years and imagined the year 2000, when capitalism would find its zenith with the construction of The Pleasure Palace, a glittering 100-story-high structure in the middle of New York's Central Park. During the grand opening of the towering building, a scientific experiment with radiumite explodes, killing everybody throughout the world except eleven people at the Pleasure Palace.|These survivors struggle to rebuild their lives by creating a new capitalistic society. After that fails, along with several other efforts, they create a utopian society on the lush grounds of a grand country estate in the Pocantico Hills above the Hudson River, embodying Sinclair's life-long vision of "The Cooperative Commonwealth."In 1907, Upton Sinclair looked forward 93 years and imagined the year 2000, when capitalism would find its zenith with the construction of The Pleasure Palace, a glittering half-mile-high structure in the middle of Central Park. During the grand opening of the towering building, a scientific experiment with radiumite explodes killing everybody throughout the world except eleven of the people at the Pleasure Palace. They escape the deadly rays by flying high in the sky in a revolutionary 1000-mph airplane called "The Monarch of the Air!" The fortunate eleven survivors struggle to rebuild their lives by creating a capitalistic society. After that fails, along with several other inept efforts, they create a successful utopian society on the lush grounds of a grand country estate in the Pocantico Hills above the Hudson River. Sinclair's life-long vision, "The Cooperative Commonwealth," reigns happily forever after, in this classic of the literature of political imagination.
