Though today best remembered as a science fiction writer, H. G. Wells was a keen observer of social and geopolitical trends who mined his era's headlines as fodder for his creative work. The writer was deeply shaken by the destruction and death wrought by World War I, and in this volume of passionate essays and observations, Wells lays out his suggestions for avoiding global conflict in the future.
