Chapter 34 Nunc Age (1905) Summary

Adams returns to New York and is impressed by the size and power of the city, though not necessarily pleased with it. It seems like a city devoted to the acceleration and power of the Dynamo, but also of all the anarchy and chaos brought about by the fragmentation and complexity at work since his moment of unity in the 13th century. "The new American must be either the child of the new forces or a chance sport of nature." Progress, in technology and in capitalism, is unstoppable, but Adams still has hopes for the future; Hay has come as close as possible to assuring world peace, at least for a while, and Adams hopes that he can return in 1938, the centenary of his birth, to see a world that has learned from its mistakes and mastered chaos and corruption.
