The Iron Heel Book Description:

The Iron Heel is a dystopian novel by American writer Jack London, first published in 1908. Generally considered to be "the earliest of the modern Dystopian," it chronicles the rise of an oligarchic tyranny in the United States. It is arguably the novel in which Jack London's socialist views are most explicitly on display. A forerunner of soft science fiction novels and stories of the 1960s and 1970s, the book stresses future changes in society and politics while paying much less attention to technological changes.

The Iron Heel by Jack London Penguin Classics Book Description:

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.

The Iron Heel illustrated Book Description:

'The Iron Heel' is one of Jack London's best works. It is the story of a manuscript known as the 'Everhard Manuscript' - written by Avis Everhard. It was a personal document, written about Avis' husband, Ernest Everhard. He was one of the heroes behind the Revolution, and his unusual work surrounding 'Proletarian Science', and 'Proletarian philosophy'. The manuscript was written during a turbulent time, from 1912 to 1932, and the crushing Oligarchy known as the Iron Heel. It was a time of revolt, and after her husband's execution in 1932, Avis hid the manuscript in the heart of an old oak tree, in Wake Robin Lodge, California. The book begins at the start of her story, with footnotes to clarify, or to further explain aspects of Avis Everhard's story. It is a fascinating read, depicting the lives of factory workers, and people kept in poverty through their slim wages, and the work put in to prevent people in such dire conditions to be pawns in the Capitalist labour force - often made to work at a very young age. She met him in 1912, when her father hosted a dinner at his house in Berkeley. There were a great many guests there, from professors, Bishops, and Ministers. Avis was instantly drawn to him, from his chiselled good looks, to his passion as he debated with the other dinner guests, and his invested interest in philosophy. Her father had met Ernest Everhard shortly before the dinner, when he spotted the man standing outside on a soap-box, earnestly explaining economics to the working-men. He was a socialist, and was known for taking difficult to understand concepts, and explaining them in simpler language so that they were accessible to the working class. Self-educated in multiple languages and subjects, Everhard had begun work in the mills when he was ten years old. Avis became quite intrigued by the man, spending days reading up on all of his scientific and philosophical books published by a socialist publishing house in Chicago. She needed to see him again. And one afternoon, she got her wish when Ernest came to her father's house for tea. That meeting led Avis to knowing the man much more thoroughly, and he changed her entire outlook on the world. For Avis, things would never be the same again.

THE IRON HEEL Political Dystopian Classic Book Description:

This carefully crafted ebook: "THE IRON HEEL (Political Dystopian Classic)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The year is 2600 AD or 419 B.O.M. (the Brotherhood of Man) when Anthony Meredith, a scholar from the future, comes across an important manuscript of Avis Everhard written around 1912-1932 when "Iron Heel” came to power in USA. "Iron Heel” is an oligarchic regime where the power and money is concentrated in the hands of a few rulers and Avis and her husband Ernest are involved in a conspiracy to overthrow it. Although Meredith knows the fate of Avis and Ernest but what they saw and suffered would shake you to the core. This novel is a prophetic dystopia that is said to have inspired George Orwell, the author of 1984, who described Jack London as having made "a very remarkable prophecy of the rise of Fascism". Orwell believed that Jack London's understanding of contemporary politics had made him a better prophet "than many better-informed and more logical thinkers." Jack London (1876–1916) was an American novelist, journalist, and social activist. London was part of the radical literary group "The Crowd" in San Francisco and a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life". He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen", and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf.

The Iron Heel new classics Book Description:

The soft summer wind stirs the redwoods, and Wild-Water ripples sweet cadences over its mossy stones. There are butterflies in the sunshine, and from everywhere arises the drowsy hum of bees. It is so quiet and peaceful, and I sit here, and ponder, and am restless. It is the quiet that makes me restless. It seems unreal. All the world is quiet, but it is the quiet before the storm. I strain my ears, and all my senses, for some betrayal of that impending storm. Oh, that it may not be premature! That it may not be premature!* * The Second Revolt was largely the work of Ernest Everhard, though he cooperated, of course, with the European leaders. The capture and secret execution of Everhard was the great event of the spring of 1932 A.D. Yet so thoroughly had he prepared for the revolt, that his fellow-conspirators were able, with little confusion or delay, to carry out his plans. It was after Everhard's execution that his wife went to Wake Robin Lodge, a small bungalow in the Sonoma Hills of California.
