Utopia: The History of an Idea

by Gregory Claeys - £9.99  Thames & Hudson Ltd (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780500295526 | ISBN 10: 0500295522

A compelling history of a perennially powerful idea: the quest for the ideal society.
 
We have always dreamed of better societies. Philosophers, poets, reformers, architects and artists have imagined them in intricate detail, from Asia to the Americas, across Europe, Africa and the Arab world.
 
Here, Gregory Claeys explores the origins, evolution and influence of utopian thinking, taking in creation myths and religious archetypes, voyages of discovery and new worlds, revolutions social and technological, model communities and dystopian regimes, science fiction and space travel.
