The Shape of Things to Come

The Shape of Things to Come is a work of science fiction by H. G. Wells, published in 1933, which speculates on future events from 1933 until the year 2106. In the book, a world state is established as the solution to humanity's problems.

As a frame story, Wells claims that the book is his edited version of notes written by an eminent diplomat, Dr Philip Raven, who had been having dream visions of a history textbook published in 2106 and wrote down what he could remember of it. It is split into five separate sections or "books": 1. Today And Tomorrow: The Age of Frustration Dawns - The history of the world up to 1933; 2. The Days After Tomorrow: The Age of Frustration - 1933-1960; 3. The World Renaissance: The Birth of the Modern State - 1960-1978; 4. The Modern State Militant - 1978-2059; and 5. The Modern State in Control of Life - 2059 to New Year's Day 2106. (from wikipedia.org)
