The Iron Heel (1908)
Set in the future, "The Iron Heel" describes a world in which the division between the classes has deepened, creating a powerful Oligarchy that retains control through terror. A manuscript by rebel Avis Everhard is recovered in an even more distant future, and analyzed by scholar Anthony Meredith. Published in 1908, Jack London's multi-layered narrative is an early example of the dystopian novel, and its vision of the future proved to be eerily prescient of the violence and fascism that marked the initial half of the 20th century.

DO NOT ORDER THIS VERSION OF 'The Iron Heel'. This edition is extremely poorly made - there are no page numbers, no publishing information, and footnotes appear in the main body of the text making for a difficult read. Several paragraphs appear multiple times in the text out of order. Bizarre
