"The Iron Heel" is Jack London's 1908 dsytopian novel about the rise of oligarchic tyranny in the United States. Playing upon the socialistic themes that were so prevalent at the beginning of the 20th century, "The Iron Heel" tells the story of a wealthy class that squeezes out the middle class and effectively rules for three centuries until a revolution ushers in the "Brotherhood of Man". As important a commentary today as when it was first written, London's novel is a chilling depiction of a possible future world and an excellent exposition on the struggle between socio-economic classes.This is one of London's most influential novels and is said to have inspired George Orwell's "1984". Orwell was a great admirer of the American novelist and credited him with prophesying the rise of Fascism. Frederic Tuten also used "The Iron Heel" as inspiration; he quotes extensively from it in his novel "The Adventures of Mao on the Long March".
