1 Huxley, Aldous. Bradshaw, David, ed. THE HIDDEN HUXLEY: CONTEMPT AND COMPASSION FOR THE MASSES 1920-36.
Faber and Faber, London, (1994), Ist printing. 
255 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. " the time (Huxley) wrote his classic novel (Brave New World), (he) was a proponent of eugenics and an outspoken champion of anti-democratic government. For the past sixty years this Huxley has remained entirely unknown. 'The Hidden Huxley' presents a selection of his hitherto undocumented articles and broadcasts of this period. They reveal a complex figure, who was both typical of his era in his abhorrence of mass civilisation, and u n i q u e i n t h at his contempt gradually gave way to a sympathetic affinity with ordinary men and women. By 1937, when Huxley left Europe for the United States, the cultural elitist had been firmly displaced by the legendary humanist. Huxley' s fa sc in at i ng p r og re ss from a scourge of the masses to their compassionate spokesman - a volte-face which took him down coalmines, into factories and to a New Forest camp for the unemployed - is here exposed for the first time." Dust jack et ha s m ino r e dg e w ear /w rin kli ng, light rubbing. VG+/VG
