The World of ‘The Man in the High Castle'

Today on Far Future Horizons we will once again take a foray into alternate history and glimpse the world as portrayed in Philip K. Dick’s Hugo award-winning novel “The Man in the High Castle”.

The Man in the High Castle' is classic in the genre of alternate history novels and inspired countless authors to write their own alternative history scenarios of a world dominated by a victorious Adolf Hitler.

The book tells the story of daily life under totalitarian Fascist imperialism and takes place in 1962, fifteen years after the end of a longer Second World War (1939–1947 in this version). The victorious Axis Powers—Imperial Japan, Fascist Italy, and Nazi Germany are conducting intrigues against each other in a partitioned and defeated United States of America.
In today’s video feature, produced by the Alternate History Hub, we  analyze the world of Philip K. Dick's 'The Man in the High Castle'. 

This novel  is currently being made into a four-part mini-series which began filming on October 1st of this year.

We encourage our readers to visit the Alternate History Hub on YouTube.

The Alternate History Hub is an entire channel dedicated to the 'What If?" of history. Using the knowledge of geography, population and other historical facts we can see what could have happened if events changed.

Learn about how the world would be different if, the Axis won World War II, if America lost the Revolution, or even discover entire alternate countries. Learn controversial topics such as if Christianity never existed and many other subjects.
