In this chapter, Huxley introduces the historical forces that led to the creation of the dystopia. The  analysis, delivered by World Controller Mustapha Mond, seems to contradict Ford's own statement,  quoted by Mond, "History is bunk." With the appearance of the unconventional, powerful Mond,  Huxley offers a deeper, grittier vision of the dystopia than the sanitized explanations of Henry Foster  and the D.H.C.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
