Item Description...
Besides writing science fiction like The War of the Worlds and The Invisible Man, Wells was deeply interested in history and current events. This book was written during World War II, after he had resigned as Minister of Allied Propaganda. While in this position he became privy to information that shocked him concerning the Roman Catholic Church. Much of what he found is in this book. After it was released a loud protest came from the Roman Catholic press accusing Wells, a respected writer, of spreading half-truths, innuendoes, and logical fallacies. He responded by saying that the church routinely engages in a complex, modern boycott of liberal thought that requires us to fight this intolerance with our own intolerance of the Roman Catholic system. For the most part, this book has been swept under the rug of history because Wells offers credibility to an opposing view.

More About H. G. Wells

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Herbert George Wells was born in Bromley, Kent, England, on September 21, 1866. His father was a professional cricketer and sometime shopkeeper, his mother a former lady's maid. Although "Bertie" left school at fourteen to become a draper's apprentice (a life he detested), he later won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in London, where he studied with the famous Thomas Henry Huxley. He began to sell articles and short stories regularly in 1893. In 1895, his immediately successful novel The Time Machine rescued him from a life of penury on a schoolteacher's salary. His other "scientific romances"--The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), The War of the Worlds (1898), The First Men in the Moon (1901), and The War in the Air (1908)--won him distinction as the father of science fiction. Henry James saw in Wells the most gifted writer of the age, but Wells, having coined the phrase "the war that will end war" to describe World War I, became increasingly disillusioned and focused his attention on educating mankind with his bestselling Outline of History (1920) and his later utopian works. Living until 1946, Wells witnessed a world more terrible than any of his imaginative visions, and he bitterly observed: "Reality has taken a leaf from my book and set itself to supercede me."

Greg Bear's novels and stories have appeared in more than twenty languages worldwide and have won numerous prizes, including two Hugos, five Nebulas, and the Prix Apollo. His novels include Darwin's Radio (winner of the Nebula and Endeavor awards), Darwin's Children, Vitals, Blood Music, Eon, Queen of Angels, and Moving Mars. He has served as a consultant and a lecturer on space and defense policy, biotechnology and bioterrorism, multimedia entertainment, and Internet issues.

Simon J. James is Professor of Victorian Literature at the Department of English Studies, Durham University. He is the editor of The Wellsian, the peer-reviewed scholarly journal of the H.G. Wells Society. He has edited four H.G. Wells novels for the Penguin Classics, as well as George Gissing's Charles Dickens: A Critical Study. James is the author of Maps of Utopia: H.G. Wells, Modernity and the End of Culture and Unsettled Accounts: Money and Narrative Form in the Novels of George Gissing.

H. G. Wells was born in 1866 and died in 1946.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Title of Chapter 1 ?  Dec 8, 1999
The original (Agora 1944 pub) had chapter 1 as Why Do We Not Bomb Rome? As Wells wrote it. In all of the other publications I noted that Chapter 1 was relocated as the last chapter 23. This changes the overall impression of the book as Wells originally wrote it. The first time reader should read the Agora version first to get the authors real meaning. Wells was never shy and NEVER did he beat around the bush, as this change made it appear.
 
An emotionally charged scathing indictment of Catholicism  Mar 18, 1999
Crux Ansata is a sometimes scholarly, sometimes emotional indictment of the Roman Catholic Church. Drawing on theological history, Wells builds a case against the Church for various reasons, predominantly political. All of this leads up to a final chapter entitled, "Why Do We Not Bomb Rome?" It is the work of a man passionately crusading against his own conceptions of ignorance, and while convincing at times, I couldn't help but wonder while reading it, "What did the nuns do to him"? Written towards the end of Wells's career when he became exceedingly bitter and critical of modern society.
