The Iron Heel, by Jack London

Penguin, 2006

Auerbach edits and provides a new introduction of Jack London's The Iron Heel. Part science fiction, part dystopian fantasy, part radical socialist tract, London offers a grim depiction of warfare between the classes in America and around the globe. Originally published in 1908, The Iron Heel anticipates many features of the past century, including the rise of fascism, the emergence of domestic terrorism, and the growth of centralized government surveillance and authority.
