Summary

This near-future political satire about the election of a new president argues that socialism and populism will eventually give rise to chaos and disaster.

Authored by Ingersoll Lockwood - around whom conspiracy theories concerning the sci-fi/fantasy character Baron Trump now abound - 1900, Or: The Last President is notable for both its clairvoyance and its reflection on the social movements and political climate of its time.

Worth a listen

Amazing prescience!

The events leading to the shutting down of a President by both Congress and Senate by disallowing a State of The Union address is the story which is arguably being mirrored in January 2019.

An interesting book.

Not as advertised

If your trying this book, because you’ve heard it had something to do with our President Trump. Don’t, as you will be disappointed. It does not have anything to do with President Trump, however it is a good listen. As long as you listen to with no expectations.

Eerily relevant

Compelling in that this was written so many years ago. Almost as if the author was clairvoyant, seeing a truth of the fragility of our dear republic and its fate which rests solely on the people to continue.

Quick Read

Disturbing, suspenseful, and provocative. This quick book really forces readers to imagine such a possibility.

Great story. Reader/ publisher changed a lot

As with a lot of older publications these new publishers and reader change as they see fit. Sad really. MR Lockwood would be disappointed.

Was more of a play by play

I guess i had more conspiracy expectations relating to a futuristic ideal of a US administration.
