When you think of Jack London, you probably think of works like "Call of the Wild" -- yes, there's something fantastic about the work, but in the end it's not something you'd want to shelve with the SF or the Fantasy. It's conservative, and thoughtful, and has a very real understanding of the world. This is something different. Oh, it's got London's understanding, but it was written before he changed his politics -- "The Iron Heel" gives us a grim, SFnal, and socialist vision of the world endlessly at war -- Vietnam-style war, at that. Fascinating, thoughtful, and exciting stuff from a real master. "A truer prophecy of the future than either "Brave New World" or "The Shape of Things to Come."" -- George Orwell "Still more astonishing is the genuinely prophetic vision of the methods by which the "Iron Heel" will sustain its domination over crushed mankind." -- Leon Trotsky

The Iron Heel

In this harrowing tale of class warfare that merges science fiction and fantasy, a powerful state organization known as "The Iron Heel" is determined to crush the working class, at any cost.

In 1905 the troops of the Tsar crushed the Russian revolution of 1905. Although the uprising did force Nicholas II to establish a constitution and a parliament, the Russian revolution of 1917 would change the face of the world. However, the uprising also had the interesting effect of inspiring two of the more interesting utopian novels of the early 20th century. One was Red Star, the socialist utopia on Mars created by the Russian writer Alexander Bogdanov, a Bolshevik and intimate of Lenin. The other was The Iron Heel, by Jack London, the American author best known for The Call of the Wild. Whereas Bogdanov forsees the ultimate victory of the socialist and scientific-technical revolutions, London predicts global revolutionary and counter-revolutionary forces ending up in an apocalyptic battle betwen the impoverished workers and the privileged minorities. Consequently, the two authors share a common socialist perspective, although Bogdanov writes a utopian novel and London creates a dystopia. The Iron Heel was written in 1908 and remains one of the more prophetic novels of the 20th century. His track record with regards to a national secret police agency, the rise of Fascism, the creation of attractive suburbs for the middle class while the unemployed and menials live in ghettoes, is markedly better than that of Edward Belleamys Looking Backward, Aldoux Huxleys Brave New World, or George Orwells 1984, the novels that are usually lauded and judged by their prescience in terms of utopian literature. The novel presents the story of the American revolutionary Earnest Everhard, as told by his wife Avis, who is actually the more effective revolutionary leader. London tells how the manuscript was unknown for seven centuries, to be discovered long after the final triumph of socialist democracy in the yar 419 B.O.M. Avis Everhard describes the struggles of the working masses against the oligarchy, and how they were ruthlessly suppressed, especially in the Chicago Commune that is the main setting for the action. There is a strong current of violence, with Black Hundreds wrecking the socialist presses, a bomb exploding in the House of Representatives, and revolutionaries being hunted down by the military arm of the government known as the Iron Heel. The Everhard Manuscript breaks off in the middle of a sentence, a footnote explaining that history does not know if the author escaped or was captured. The story is somewhat atypical for London in that it does not represent the white supremacist and male dominant vision of the world we usually find in his novels. Londons message is the blatant warning that if you allow the Revolution to be defeated, then the ruling class will grind you revolutionists down under our heel, and we shall walk upon your faces. Ultimately The Iron Heel is a novel whose importance clearly outstrips its literary quality. The problem is that with the end of World War II and the defeat (essentially) of Fascism that Londons novel was no longer of interest as the world was confronted with a new set of problems. Yet, Londons dytopian novel is one of the works in that genre that deserves to be reconsidered more often

Renowned as a writer of classic adventure stories such as The Call of the Wild and White Fang, Jack London also had a parallel career as a writer of science fiction and fantasy. In Leonaur's three volume, The Collected Science Fiction & Fantasy of Jack London, his SF and fantasy novels and shorter works are brought together for the first time. In the early twentieth century the USA diverged from the path of the history we know. Viewed from 800 years in the future, through the pages of an ancient manuscript, we learn that huge business conglomerates became all powerful, and ordinary people little more than slaves - the property of a despotic regime that controlled their lives. Those savage and inhuman times are vividly depicted in The Iron Heel, one of Jack London's finest novels. Also in this volume are five shorter works that demonstrate both the scope of London's imagination and his concern for the future of our world.

"The Iron Heel" is Jack London's 1908 dsytopian novel about the rise of oligarchic tyranny in the United States. Playing upon the socialistic themes that were so prevalent at the beginning of the 20th century, "The Iron Heel" tells the story of a wealthy class that squeezes out the middle class and effectively rules for three centuries until a revolution ushers in the "Brotherhood of Man". As important a commentary today as when it was first written, London's novel is a chilling depiction of a possible future world and an excellent exposition on the struggle between socio-economic classes.This is one of London's most influential novels and is said to have inspired George Orwell's "1984". Orwell was a great admirer of the American novelist and credited him with prophesying the rise of Fascism. Frederic Tuten also used "The Iron Heel" as inspiration; he quotes extensively from it in his novel "The Adventures of Mao on the Long March".
