In The World Set Free, H.G. Wells takes a science fictional look at the future, where if world peace is to be attained through labor internationalism, it will have to be at the price of complete social and economic reconstruction. But first comes a phase of revolution—violent, very bloody, and prolonged, which in the end may fail to achieve anything but social destruction. The World Set Free is a vision of highly educated and highly favored leading and ruling men, voluntarily setting themselves to the task of reshaping the world.

    " H.G. Well's utopianism can be nauseating, but the book had vivid descriptions and prescient insights. "

    " This has to be one of the most depressing books I have ever read. H.G. Wells' "The World Set Free" lends a whole new meaning to the word dystopia. I had to stop myself from reading it on numerous occasions as I found I was very depressed by what I was reading. "

    " Well, what can you say about a book, published in 1913, which predicted the atomic bomb? OK, he had it being used on Berlin in 1956, but not bad, not bad ata all. "
