A classic. Futurist. Predates Orwell's 1984 by almost two decades. Social engineering is not Stalinian " Big Brother" nor workplace obsolescence but sensual conditioning: movies become the "feelies"; recordings during sleep make on love one's class (white, green etc); "soma" pills regulate reproducitve and cicardian rhythms; reproduction is removed from the body.
The conditioned human has become increasingly recognized over the 20th and 21st centuries.
