"The Camford Visitation" is a novel by H. G. Wells first published in 1938. The story centres around a Utopian 'ventriloquist' who subjects human life-and in particular its treatment by the University of Camford-to sympathetic but quite unsparing scrutiny. At its core, it was a warning to the educational world of imminent war and of its lack of action, as well as an exploration of the place of education in society. Contents include: "Mr Trumber's Experience", "In the Cramb Meadows", "Mr Preeders Pigeon-holes", "The Communist Party is Annoyed in its Turn", "Congregation Day", and "The Healing Touch in History". Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
