Annotation

Eutopia although much is a criticism of the past. Standard support of 1888 Bellamy using Bellamy’s setting and characters, with his Julian West the protagonist. Technologically advanced with food from chemicals. Cemeteries have been abolished, the bodies disinterred and cremated, and the land turned into parks. Judges write the few laws needed. No lawyers. No appeal from the court’s decision. Young men and women work in separate jobs because women working with men lose their femininity. Seen as still improving.
