"Looking Backward: 2000-1887" is a utopian science fiction novel written by
Edward Bellamy and published in 1888. It quickly became a bestseller, with
over a million copies sold in its first years. The book influenced
intellectuals and sparked a political mass movement known as Nationalism. The
story follows Julian West, who falls into a deep sleep in the 19th century and
wakes up in the year 2000 to find a transformed socialist utopia. The novel
explores themes of capitalism, nationalization of industry, and free cultural
production. Bellamy's work was compared to actual economic and technological
developments of the time. It had a significant impact on literature, politics,
and urban planning, inspiring sequels, parodies, and debates. Looking Backward
remains influential and has been translated into multiple languages.
