This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

The classic dystopian novel from Sweden, written at the midpoint between Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four

Leo Kall is a zealous, middle-ranking scientist in the totalitarian World State who has just made a thrilling discovery- a new drug, Kallocain, that will force anyone who takes it to tell the truth. At last, criminality will be dragged out into the open and private thought can finally be outlawed. But can the World State be trusted with Kallocain? For that matter - can Kall himself be trusted?

Written as the terrible events of the Second World War were unfolding, Karin Boye's classic dystopian novel speaks more clearly than ever of the dangers of acquiescence, and the power of resistance, no matter how futile.
