- The Angel of the Revolution: A Tale of the Coming Terror by Griffith
Nevertheless, George Griffith has painstakingly crafted a believable story of war. In fact, he spends a great deal of time detailing the movements and military strengths of the various sides of the war. Despite the lack of challenge the protagonist faces in his journey from penniless genius to undisputed master of the skies, the book becomes harder and harder to put down as it goes along.
You want to find out the secret of Natas and his strange power, and how the Terrorists came to be, and so you keep reading. Also, there are numerous detailed pictures that help bring Griffith's world into sharper focus. All in all, I recommend all steampunk fans read The Angel of the Revolution. I just hope the second book in the series has more conflict. This book was published in and fairly accurately predicted the invention of heavier-than-air vehicles in the early s, although the planes were more like modern helicopters than the modified gliders that the Wrights first developed.
The propulsion was by a reaction of two unspecified gasses, which is really a rocket motor, but it is certainly possible. The airplanes were unrealistically capable of sustained This book was published in and fairly accurately predicted the invention of heavier-than-air vehicles in the early s, although the planes were more like modern helicopters than the modified gliders that the Wrights first developed.
The airplanes were unrealistically capable of sustained flight of many hours, but otherwise the plot would have come to a complete stop at several points. The book also predicted world war in Europe caused primarily by class struggles, albeit about a decade earlier than what actually happened, and with England allied with Germany and France allied with Russia.
The heroes of the book are socialists lead by a mysterious figure known as Natas was it deliberate that this is Satan spelled backwards? Griffith seemed to think that airplanes were sufficiently difficult to produce that no other entity would have them, thus giving their owners vast military superiority. The socialists use their air power to essentially wipe out all opposing forces and install a world government. The socialists are pretty ruthless in their decimation, purporting that only by doing so can they instill the true horrors of war in people so that no wars will ever be fought again.
The whole political machinery and internal resources of the United States were now virtually at the command of a great Ring of capitalists who, through the medium of the huge monopolies which they controlled, and the enormous sums of money at their command, held the country in the hollow of their hand. These men were as totally devoid of all human feeling or public sentiment as it was possible for human beings to be. They had grown rich in virtue of their contempt of every principle of justice and mercy, and they had no other object in life than to still further increase their gigantic hoards of wealth, and to multiply the enormous powers which they already wielded.
The then condition of affairs in Europe had presented them with such an opportunity as no other combination of circumstances could have given them, and ignoring, as such wretches would naturally do, all ties of blood and kindred speech, they had determined to take advantage of the situation to the utmost. The book is fairly fast-paced and although there are a few clunky expository sections, I thought it was fairly modern in its use of grammar and organization.
Apparently this is Griffith's first and signature s. It certainly is full of interesting concepts both high and low: war to end all wars, a progressive income tax, the intrigue of underground revolutionaries, aerial warships, international politics, advanced explosives and more. There are references to Verne not too surprising considering the similarities to several of the Frenchman's novels and one character is named Roburoff wonder where Griffith got that one?
As for the head honc Apparently this is Griffith's first and signature s. As for the head honcho of the revolutionaires, he's named Natas "Satan" spelled backwards who has the power to control mens' will at a single glance.

The Angel of the Revolution also features imaginary battles lots of imaginary battles! Despite the varied elements and historical import, it makes for a read that's, well, rather boring. It's as though Griffith captured the essence in written form of someone speaking in monotone. His style strikes me as akin to that of a stenographer taking meeting minutes The edition that I read features an excellent intro, useful footnotes and illuminating appendix material prepared by Steven McLean.
I got something out of reading The Angel of the Revolution, I suppose, but it took work. View all 3 comments. Apr 19, Stephen Taylor rated it really liked it. An early example of a genre known, apparently, as"invasion fiction", this is a mix of early sf and political polemic. It's very much of its time, with airships regarded as the weapon that would make their possessor unbeatable and future war impossible.
The idea of an Anglo-Saxon alliance being the natural and inevitable noble leadership of the world, having beaten the Eastern Peril of the Slavic races and the hordes of the Mohometans and Hindoos reads incongruously and uncomfortably to modern ey An early example of a genre known, apparently, as"invasion fiction", this is a mix of early sf and political polemic.
The idea of an Anglo-Saxon alliance being the natural and inevitable noble leadership of the world, having beaten the Eastern Peril of the Slavic races and the hordes of the Mohometans and Hindoos reads incongruously and uncomfortably to modern eyes. Remarkably for its time, though, not only is one of its leading protagonists Jewish and on the side of good, the issue of mixed faith marriages is also treated positively. The language is mannered, but no more so than many of its contemporaries May 19, Glenn rated it it was amazing. He invented a model air ship that runs on internal combustion by two unknown reactive gases.
He was eating one day and a person came to him asking about the air ship. Arnold asked if he was from the Tsar or king of Russia. After a discussion of this Arnold was asked if he wanted to join the Brotherhood of Freedom and bring peace to earth with full size airships. Arnold then joined it and built the first air ship "Ariel". After that the Brotherhood tested the weapons by leveling a castle in four shots. This is an awesome old book by George Griffith. It constants everything from battles, logic, adventure, and many interesting characters.
Jul 21, Rich Humes rated it it was ok. I almost gave it a third star out of pity. It was interesting at points, but never anything special. I can ignore the laughable, utopian characterization of socialism because it was a common product of stories at the time. What's less forgivable is the lack of depth to these characters. Did anyone care about any of them? The book was long enough to make the characters something other than cold robots, but nope. Even when there was an attempt at passion the characters just ended up being automaton I almost gave it a third star out of pity.
Even when there was an attempt at passion the characters just ended up being automatons. I usually want some sort of prescience in these types of stories, but this one really misses the mark. Air war would end war? That couldn't have been more wrong. Socialism as the great protector of freedom? History did not prove that true. I really wanted to like it, but it just wasn't interesting, logical, or prescient.
Apr 04, Sierra Apaliski rated it it was ok Shelves: home-library.
Interesting take on nihilism in the Victorian era by using science fiction. I felt that the plot skipped around a lot, but that flows with how the book was published in parts. Jan 26, Rachel Humphrey rated it really liked it Shelves: action , adventure , epic-series , fiction , sci-fi , steampunk.
This was a random pull from a free e-reader because I liked the title of the book. That being said, this was a very interesting, albeit tedious at times, read with a high arcing story-line that depicts the world falling into world war during the early 's thanks to an independent terrorist military group's discovery of a young genius and his amazing invention of the flying machine.
Perhaps dread would be a better word. I This was a random pull from a free e-reader because I liked the title of the book. I found myself glum as the bad guys have solid leaders. The bad guys find the key to victory. The bad guys win all the battles. In , at the age of 30, Matthew was sentenced to 35 years for selling drugs and related offenses. Over the next two decades, he completed more than 30 Bible studies, became a law clerk, and mentored many of his fellow inmates.
Now, Matthew is the very first person to be released from prison under the First Step Act. Matthew please. Thank you Matthew. Welcome home. Congress has 10 days left to pass a bill that will fund our government, protect our homeland, and secure our very dangerous southern border. Now is the time for Congress to show the world that America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, drug dealers, and human traffickers out of business. As we speak, large, organized caravans are on the march to the United States. We have just heard that Mexican cities, in order to remove the illegal immigrants from their communities, are getting trucks and buses to bring them up to our country in areas where there is little border protection.
I have ordered another 3, troops to our southern border to prepare for the tremendous onslaught. This is a moral issue. The lawless state of our southern border is a threat to the safety, security and financial well-being of all America. We have a moral duty to create an immigration system that protects the lives and jobs of our citizens. This includes our obligation to the millions of immigrants living here today, who followed the rules and respected our laws.
Legal immigrants enrich our nation and strengthen our society in countless ways. I want people to come into our country, in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally. Tonight, I am asking you to defend our very dangerous southern border out of love and devotion to our fellow citizens and to our country.
Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards. Tolerance for illegal immigration is not compassionate — it is actually very cruel.

One in three women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north. Smugglers use migrant children as human pawns to exploit our laws and gain access to our country. Human traffickers and sex traffickers take advantage of the wide open areas between our ports of entry to smuggle thousands of young girls and women into the United States and to sell them into prostitution and modern-day slavery.
Tens of thousands of innocent Americans are killed by lethal drugs that cross our border and flood into our cities — including meth, heroin, cocaine and fentanyl. The savage gang, MS, now operates in at least 20 different American states, and they almost all come through our southern border. Just yesterday, an MS gang member was taken into custody for a fatal shooting on a subway platform in New York City.
We are removing these gang members by the thousands, but until we secure our border they're going to keep streaming right back in. Year after year, countless Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens. Here tonight is Debra Bissell. They were in their eighties and are survived by 4 children, 11 grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren. To Debra, Heather, Madison, please stand. Few can understand your pain.
Thank you for being here. I will never forget, and I will fight for the memory of Gerald and Sharon, that it should never happen again. Not one more American life should be lost because our nation failed to control its very dangerous border. In the last two years, our brave ICE officers made , arrests of criminal aliens, including those charged or convicted of nearly , assaults, 30, sex crimes, and 4, killings or murders. When Elvin was a boy, he and his family legally immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic. At the age of eight, Elvin told his dad he wanted to become a Special Agent.
Today, he leads investigations into the scourge of international sex trafficking. Special Agent Hernandez please stand. We will always support the brave men and women of law enforcement — and I pledge to you tonight that we will never abolish our heroes from ICE. My administration has sent to Congress a commonsense proposal to end the crisis on the Southern Border. It includes humanitarian assistance, more law enforcement, drug detection at our ports, closing loopholes that enable child smuggling, and plans for a new physical barrier, or wall, to secure the vast areas between our ports of entry.
In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall. But the proper wall was never built. This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall. It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way way down. San Diego used to have the most illegal border crossings in our country. In response, a strong security wall was put in place. This powerful barrier almost completely ended illegal crossings. The border city of El Paso, Texas, used to have extremely high rates of violent crime — one of the highest in the entire country, and considered one of our nation's most dangerous cities.
Now, immediately upon its building, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of the safest cities in our country. Simply put, walls work and walls save lives. So let's work together, compromise, and reach a deal that will truly make America safe. As we work to defend our people's safety, we must also ensure our economic resurgence continues at a rapid pace. No one has benefited more from our thriving economy than women, who have filled 58 percent of the newly created jobs last year.
And exactly one century after Congress passed the constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote, Here is more on how Democrats strategized around the guests they invited. Really great. And congratulations. As part of our commitment to improving opportunity for women everywhere, this Thursday we are launching the first ever government-wide initiative focused on economic empowerment for women in developing countries. To build on our incredible economic success, one priority is paramount — reversing decades of calamitous trade policies.
So bad. We are now making it clear to China that after years of targeting our industries, and stealing our intellectual property, the theft of American jobs and wealth has come to an end. I have great respect for President Xi, and we are now working on a new trade deal with China. But it must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices, reduce our chronic trade deficit, and protect American jobs.
For years, politicians promised them they would negotiate for a better deal. But no one ever tried — until now. Our new U. I hope you can pass the U. Tonight, I am also asking you to pass the United States Reciprocal Trade Act, so that if another country places an unfair tariff on an American product, we can charge them the exact same tariff on the exact same product that they sell to us.
Both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America's crumbling infrastructure. I know that Congress is eager to pass an infrastructure bill — and I am eager to work with you on legislation to deliver new and important infrastructure investment, including investments in the cutting edge industries of the future. This is not an option. This is a necessity. The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs — and to has refused to defend key provisions of the Affordable Care Act that protect people with pre-existing medical conditions.
Preserving protections for people with pre-existing conditions was a central message for Democrats in the midterm elections. But we must do more. This is wrong, this is unfair, and together we will stop it. And we will stop it fast.

I am asking Congress to pass legislation that finally takes on the problem of global freeloading and delivers fairness and price transparency for American patients. We should also require drug companies, insurance companies, and hospitals to disclose real prices to foster competition and bring costs way down. No force in history has done more to advance the human condition than American freedom. Scientific breakthroughs have brought a once-distant dream within reach. My budget will ask Democrats and Republicans to make the needed commitment to eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years.
We have made incredible strides. Tonight I am also asking you to join me in another fight that all Americans can get behind: the fight against childhood cancer. Joining Melania in the gallery this evening is a very brave 10 year old girl, Grace Eline. Hi Grace. Every birthday since she was 4, Grace asked her friends to donate to St. Jude Children's Hospital.
She did not know that one day she might be a patient herself. Last year, Grace was diagnosed with brain cancer. Immediately, she began radiation treatment. You are a great inspiration to everyone in this room. Many childhood cancers have not seen new therapies in decades.
To help support working parents, the time has come to pass school choice for America's children. I am also proud to be the first President to include in my budget a plan for nationwide paid family leave — so that every new parent has the chance to bond with their newborn child. There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days.
Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon Read more. These are living, feeling, beautiful, babies who will never get the chance to share their love and their dreams with the world. And then, we had the case of the Governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb.
Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children — born and unborn — are made in the holy image of God. The final part of my agenda is to protect American security. We are also getting other nations to pay their fair share. For years, the United States was being treated very unfairly by friends of ours. Members of NATO. As part of our military build-up, the United States is developing a state-of-the-art missile defense system. Under my Administration, we will never apologize for advancing America's interests.
For example, decades ago the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capability. While we followed the agreement to the letter, Russia repeatedly violated its terms.
