Annotation

Eutopia set in heaven. The stage of Heaven where the novel takes place is preparatory for higher heavens, but those who move on sometimes come back to visit. The city was founded by Zoroaster, was once led by Jesus, and is now led by a legislative council elected by all adults for a five year term. While non-Caucasians participate as equals in the world congress from their different nations, “they are not in any way the peers of those of the Caucasians” (74). Entertainment is mostly lectures by illustrious people of the past. See also the author’s The People’s Party Shot and Shell. Chicago, IL: Charles H. Kerr, 1892. Vol. 4 of the Library of Progress.
