Baker, Robert S. "Brave New World": History, Science, and Dystopia. Boston: Twayne, 1990.

Places A. Huxley's novel (q.v. under Fiction) into the context of "a falsely utopian 'New romanticism'—'a collectivist ideology, exclusively materialist and inherently antiliberal.'" Huxley finds "20th century technocracy" to be "an anti-human apparatus spawned by the essential nihilism of the New Romantic ideology." Rev. Ursula Tierney, SF&FBR 1990: 563-64, our source for our citation, and whom we quote. (See also SFRA Newsletter #188 [June 1991]: 15-16.)
