Anticipations of the Reactions of Mechanical and Scientific Progress upon Human Life and Thought

(1901)
A non fiction book by

 
 
In 1901, the great writer and social critic attempted to predict the future in this book, a fascinating mix of accurate forecasts (development of cars, buses and trucks; use of flying machines in combat, decline of permanent marriage, many more) and wild misses (submarines will suffocate their crews and founder at sea). Brimming with stimulating ideas, Anticipations holds new relevance a century after its original publication. Fascinating to read on the eve of the millennium.
