As the title suggests Joseph Hillenbrand was predicting what the world would look like after the war much in the way that popular science books of the time predicted the future. An interesting aspect of this feature was “Dream Dept” the feature’s interactive portion in which the author invited readers to send in their ideas about the future which then Hillenbrand turned into drawings. It was another example of Educational Projects attempting to engage its readers into participating.
