Fantasy, not Reality

Contrary to the book's assertions, a united world cannot be derived from atomic war, and there are and there never will be large-scale classless societies. Still, Wells was apparently a driving force behind what would be the League of Nations. Great prose. Great narration. Well worth my time.
