A now classic study of a Utopia. On a night in 1887 Julian West, a young Boston insomniac, is put to sleep in his sound-proofed basement room by a hypnotist. Time passes - indeed, exactly 113 years, three months and 11 days. And Julian West awakens, to his amazement, in the year 2000 - to a wondrously utopian world of peace and plenty.
