Annotation

Detailed eutopia called Elysium in the interior of New Guinea; based on combining Western and Buddhist values. The “Foreword” stresses the need for an international language, which explains why the book is published in SR1. The author was a physician, and there is much on the problems of contemporary medical care and the healthy lifestyle in the eutopia. See also his Homo Insipiens (man the fool). Fortitude Valley, QLD, Australia: W. R. Smith & Paterson, 1968. [2nd and enl. ed.] Brisbane, QLD, Australia: W. R. Smith & Paterson, 1969, which includes an argument for world government. See also 1939 Bostock and Nye.
