Margaret Atwood's 1985 dystopian novel about a totalitarian theocracy which has seized control of the United States became as instant classic and drew well-deserved parallels to Orwell's "1984". The television adaptation recently won 4 Emmy awards, and the cautionary tale it depicts is (unfortunately) still relevant decades after the book's publication. Despite being fiction, there are many important points for all those who champion freedom and hope to avoid the dangers of totalitarianism while leading our world into the future. In this volume of Fountain Notes for the Next Generation of Leaders, you'll find all the information from from "The Handmaid's Tale" which will help you on your journey to change the world. This basic edition contains just the notes, without my annotations.
