Aldous Huxley: a beginner's guide,
London, GB, Oneworld, 220pp.
Author of Brave New World and The Doors of Perception, and inventor of the term 'psychedelic', Aldous Huxley was a global trend-setter ahead of his time. Charting his transformation from society satirist to Californian guru-mystic, Aldous Huxley: A Beginner's Guide shows how his ideas evolved and why his writing is still vitally relevant today - from detailing the lures of consumerism to exploring individual responsibility in a globalised world. With biographical notes on Huxley's extraordinary life, a guide to the key works, and astute analysis of his (sometimes contradictory) philosophical themes, this is the definitive introduction to one of the greatest visionaries of modern times.
