Though he is today best remembered as an important early innovator in the field of science fiction who created such works as The War of the Worlds and The Time Machine, H. G. Wells was also an important political thinker who was deeply engaged in the events of his era. In this series of essays, Wells mounts a compelling argument in favor of socialism and sets forth a vision of a future in which such a system has been implemented.

Within “New Worlds For Old”, H. G. Wells explores the possible future of Socialism, advocating replacing a social system based on Private Ownership with one based on “the spirit of the service”—which he maintains would be both more productive and just. He also spends several chapters discussing the history of Socialism and common objections. A fascinating book highly recommended for those with an interest in socialism and H. G. Wells. Contents include: “The Good Will In Man”, “The Fundamental Idea Of Socialism”, “The First Main Generalization Of Socialism”, “The Second Main Generalization Of Socialism”, “The Spirit Of Gain And The Spirit Of Service”, “Would Socialism Destroy The Home?”, “Would Modern Socialism Abolish All Property?”, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Although many Americans consider the establishment of the colonies as the birth of this country, in fact Early America already existed long before the arrival of the Europeans. From coast to coast, Native Americans had created enduring cultures, and the subsequent European invasion remade much of the existing land and culture. In New Worlds for All, Colin Calloway explores the unique and vibrant new cultures that Indians and Europeans forged together in early America. The journey toward this hybrid society kept Europeans' and Indians' lives tightly entwined: living, working, worshiping, traveling, and trading together—as well as fearing, avoiding, despising, and killing one another. In the West, settlers lived in Indian towns, eating Indian food. In Mohawk Valley, New York, Europeans tattooed their faces; Indians drank tea. And, a unique American identity emerged.
