"The Iron Heel" is a dystopian novel written by Jack London, first published in 1908. The book is set in the distant future, in the year 2600, and is presented as a manuscript discovered by scholars of that time. It is a work of speculative fiction that explores social and political themes, depicting a world where a powerful oligarchy known as "The Iron Heel" has established control over society. "The Iron Heel" narrates the story of the protagonist, Avis Everhard, and her husband, Ernest Everhard, who are involved in a struggle against the oppressive ruling class. The novel is a blend of political allegory, social commentary, and adventure, offering a critique of capitalism, inequality, and the potential for authoritarianism.
