Annotation

The book is written in the predictive mode, but it includes these few pages of an explicit eutopia. Medical research has abolished disease and the elimination of slums means that there are no more “unfit”. People live longer in garden cities. Men and women are equal in all ways. No servants. Synthetic food. No poverty. Peace. No racial discrimination, and there is a general blending of types. No crime. On the Garden City movement, see The Garden City: Past, Present and Future. Ed. Stephen V. Ward. London: E & FN SPON, 1992.
