Forty years earlier, &&LB&&RH. G. Wells&&L/B&&R had first penned the story: &&LI&&RThe War of the Worlds&&L/I&&R, a science-fiction classic that endures in our collective subconscious. &&L/P&&R&&LP&&RDeeply concerned with the welfare of contemporary society, Wells wrote his novel of interplanetary conflict in anticipation of war in Europe, and in it he predicted the technological savagery of twentieth century warfare. Playing expertly on worldwide security fears, &&LI&&RThe War of the Worlds&&L/I&&R grips readers with its conviction that invasion can happen anytime, anywhere-even in our own backyard.&&L/P&&R&&LP&&R&&LB&&RAlfred Mac Adam&&L/B&&R teaches literature at Barnard College-Columbia University.
