Anno Domini 2000 or Woman's Destiny

Author(s): Julius Vogel

New Zealand Fiction

Before women even got the vote, this novel prophesied women presidents, prime ministers and leaders of the opposition. Before the Wright Brothers or Richard Pearse flew, it predicted global air travel. Before the Labour Party, it advocated social welfare and subsidised housing, and before the computer and email it foresaw a "noiseless telegraph".With Britain's Empire rampant and Home Rule in ruins, it anticipated a prosperous independent Ireland and attempted secession by Australia. As prophecy, Julius Vogel's 2000 came nearer the mark than George Orwell's 1984, according to Roger Robinson in his informative critical introduction to this special edition for the year 2000, the first new edition since the original was published in 1889.
