Everett F Bleiler; Science Fiction : The Early Years; 1990 Kent State University Press; 268. "An ideal society of the near future, plus a romance. ... As Harrison discovers, America is now a near eutopia. There is a five-hour working day, no labor-capital problems, and a reformed tax structure that has saved the nation. This is Henry George's single tax on land. The largest difference between the new United States and the old is that workers no longer try to live beyond their means. ... Management paternally supplies workers with entertainment and educational facilities, free. General health is greatly improved, due mostly to vegetarianism, about which the author feels strongly. Medical care is free. ... The mixture of conservative and liberal social patterns is odd. As fiction negligible." - Bleiler. ; Utopian Literature; Ex-Library; 177 pages.
